“So beautiful is the still hour of the sea’s withdrawal, as beautiful as the sea’s return when the encroaching waves pound up the beach, pressing to reach those dark rumpled chains of seaweed which mark the last high tide.”

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Isn’t this a beautiful description of the sea?  It seems so poetic.  I’m also thinking it would be good to appreciate the sea (or lake or river) during the summer.  Was this quote moving to you?

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!

  1. “So beautiful is the still hour of the sea’s withdrawal, as beautiful as the sea’s return when the encroaching waves pound up the beach, pressing to reach those dark rumpled chains of seaweed which mark the last high tide.”

    A modern version might read…

    “Yo sugar, I’m just rollin’ out for a while. Wait for me. Hang on to that green goopy stuff and I’ll get rid of it when I come back tonight.”

    Sorry, Debbs, couldn’t resist 😛

  2. Beautiful quote, I love the oceans, rivers and seas. Yes, it did indeed move me:-)
