No Roses:


No Roses:

No crosses mark the ocean waves;
No monuments of stone.
No roses grow on sailor's graves,
The Sailor rests alone

His tributes are the sea gulls' sweeps,
Forever wild and free . . .
And teardrops that his sweetheart weeps
To mingle with the sea

There are no roses on a sailors grave,
No lilies on an ocean wave.
The only tribute is the seagulls sweeps
And the teardrops that a sweetheart weeps.
