The Sea

The sea
We see dancing along the shores of clear bays,
Has glints of silver
The sea
The changing reflections
Under the rain
The sea
In the summer sky
She mingles her white sheep
With the angels so pure
The sea
Shepherdess of infinite blue
By the ponds
Those big wet reeds
Those white birds
And those rusty houses
The sea
Has cradled them
Along the shores of clear bays
And with a love song
The sea
Has soothed my heart for life
thanked 14 times

Changed confond to mingle from mix up
Changed mouton from horses to sheep
Changed the line regarding the sheperdess
Changed the final bercé from rocked to soothed
