Ze kroelen je, verkoelen je en voelen je
ze trekken,wekken stoeien je,
ze kolken en draaien je,
ze aaien je en paaien je.
Ze kabbelen, trillen sabbelen je
zomaar op een warme zomerdag.

Golven eten je
zweten je,
vergeten je

Ze spelen je,
helen je
van pijn en ongemak
Ze delen je en strelen je,
kalm en voorzichtig
nemen je mee
naar een andere wereld,

Ze willen je, tillen je
pakken, smakken, knakken je
is de zee
ga je mee?

Translated text Waves

They snuggle you, cool you, feel you
they pull, awake, wrestle you
they swirl and whirl you
they soothe you and woo you
They wash, tremble, suck you
just like that, on a hot summer's day

Waves eat you
sweat you,
forget you

They play you,
heal you
from aches and pains
They share you, caress you
calm and gentle
take you along
to a different world,

They want you, lift you
grab, slam and snap you
is the sea
are you coming?

Until the next Photo of the Week!
