This work has reached the exceptional level
A ghostly figure watches the sea.

~Lovers Leap~

It rhymes and flows.
~ Lovers Leap~

On misty nights you'll see her
ghost in silent reverie,
Waiting for her sailor who's
forever lost at sea.

She watches from her lofty perch,
A vigil she does keep.
A ghostly vision in the mist
on a rock called "Lover's Leap"

He left her with a tear-stained face
and with a love that burned.
He promised her a wedding ring
the day that he returned.

So, high above the jagged rocks,
she watches all the ships.
Standing in the ocean spray,
with sea salt on her lips.

She had bottled up a message
and tossed it in the sea,
it said "A baby's on the way"
you must return to me.

She was watching for his Whaler
the one called Laura Lee,
When she learned it wasn't coming back
she jumped into the sea.

She couldn't face life without him
so she jumped into the sea.
