1. Solace

<br />
<font size="4">I&rsquo;m astounded, and astonished <br />
To be surrounded by the Solace of the Sea <br />
<br />
With the infinite horizon, so redolent of brine. <br />
And the emerald illusions, in phosphorescent time. <br />
<br />
The hush is roaring, crashing into peace. <br />
The scent alluring, remaining out of reach. <br />
<br />
I will go, then I will stay <br />
The current summons me away. <br />
Cacophony will fade indeed, <br />
When there&rsquo;s Solace by the Sea <br />
