Pacific Ocean at Cannon Beach, Oregon

Alone I walked on the ocean strand, A pearly shell was in my hand

I stooped, and wrote upon the sand My name, the year, the day.

As onward from the sport I passed, One lingering look behind I cast,

A wave came rolling high and fast, And washed my lines away.
