The Pretty Mediterranean Sea

The sea of peace, The sea of beauty, The pretty sea of seagulls, The sea of love for all, The heart of all seas and oceans, The sea that embraces the pretty skies, The pretty sun shines over it wonderfully, It gathers all in its sweet basin, It stirs our feelings and emotions with love, It teaches the brilliant common living together, It’s our real sensations and pride, It’s the pretty sea of all love, It’s the real symbol of all its sons and daughters, It’s our safe haven, It’s our pretty resort and sweet comfort, It’s ours, It loves all and all love it, Its pretty waves touch us greatly, It learns us patience and wisdom, It’s the pretty place of our hearts, It’s our pretty past, pretty present And the pretty future, It’s to all coming generations The sea of love, the sea of beauty, and The pretty sea of pride. 73 more words
