Aug. 12.--Sitting by the breaking waves, nay ears filled with their sweet music, I seem to eomnmne with that beautiful Spirit, the Spirit of the Sea. I feel her mystic presence, and I hear the murmur of her voice. She is fair- er than the human heart hath dream- ed. 3~oonlight, starbeams, the glow of the morning skies, these are her com- panions; and from them she borrowed colors to tint the chambered shell and paint the myriad fishes of the deep. She hath her special world, a world unknown to mortals dwelling on the land. Her caves and grottoes are be- jewelled with such gems as never decked the crown of king or queen. The angels visit her, to borrow jewels for their brightest crowns; and of her wave-swept sands they learn to chant their purest melodies of joy, 0 Ocean Spirit, be nay bride, and let me woo thee with my purest love. Thy tresses of the dark sea-weed, thine eyes of jewels, lighted by the stars, thy teeth of whitened pebbles, and thy purling laughter, rippling from thy parted lips, as o're the beach thy. curling waves re- treat; these do I love, fair Spirit of the Sea, and fain would call thee sweet- heart, lover, bride. Fair Spirit of the Sea, Wilt thou my sweetheart be, And give me leave to woo thee, Gentle Spirit o~ the Sea? 1'11 dedicate to thee, My Sweetheart of the Sea, My purest noblest thoughts, My highest minstrelsy. C)f tiaee ['11 e~er sing, And unto thee I'll bring My treasures of the soul; And where thy billows roll VII build an altar pile Whereotx to lay-thy gihs That are most dear to thee, Sweet Spirit of the Sea For thou art fair and pure, My Sweetheart of the Sea, And dost my heart allure, And draw me after thee, To worship at thy feet, , My Goddess of the Sea. O cast me not away, My Sweetheart of the Sea, And all nay life 1'I1 strive To worthily love thee. THE END AVALON CHURCHES Catholic Church services: Sunday Masses, 8 and 10 a. m.
