The ocean tide washes over,
Banks of crystal white sand.
Gentle waves reach out,
covering the land.

The salty water brings,
Fish and rocks and shells.
The sight so very pretty,
I hear the sound of bells.

Moonlight streams down,
Glistening of a wave.
A place of natural beauty,
A place worth to save.

My last line a place worth to save is supposed to be showing the feeling. I meant the first part to be describing the beach, and it's beauty, and the last line to show how we should be saving the natural beauties still around us, like this beach. I'm sorry if that didn't get across to well.

"Dear God," she prayed, "let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry...have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost." - Betty Smith (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn)

This is beautiful! I can picture the beach and waves as I read it. :)
