Once held so deeply, below the sea

Mother of pearl, beautiful, and free

Washed ashore, on the crest of a wave

She lost her pearl, in a watery grave

Still, somewhere deep, on the ocean floor

An oyster prepares, to make one more

Yes, only from a single grain of sand

Can she create a treasure, simply grand
