Journey to the Sea

Illustration by:  Clara Burd
as found at Monday's Child: fair of face
Hello my friend, how are you today?
Oh please, won't you come along with me,
It's not far this journey, but fun you'll see,
Please, please, tell me you will, won't you stay.

I will ride my steed along the shore,
Dreaming as you run with us far more,
We'll ride to the castle along the shore,
I'll pause for you too see him by the door.

Hello my friend, how are you today?
Oh please, won't you come along with me,
We'll journey through meadows, yes but we,
Can not go far, for we have just this day.

To ride like the wind and play some more,
Climb on the rocks and hear your lion's roar,
To the castle we'll ride just like before,
Then trot along the sea upon the shore.

Hello my friend, how are you today?
Oh please, won't you come along with me.
