O' sandy shells, o' sandy shells; I know Why pearly armor 'neath the sand conceal. The whisper tells, the hearted tells of woe From windy lisps, begotten ears then seal. The hush foretells, that love foretells, of pain; A grief that hollowed clams, collect and feel. To ease the spells, that love-lost spells refrain, That lovers old; with broken shells, can heal. O' empty wells, o' loveless wells; rejoice! As by the sea; the tiny shells will steal The burning cells, the lovelorn cells and voice And nestle where; nostalgic sands congeal.
Yes lover's bells, O' magic bells; let shine! Turn not to shells, like many shells of mine.
