LAUGHING THE SALTY WATER FROM THEIR MOUTHS SOLD

SOLD

Louder than gulls the little children scream 
Whom fathers haul into the jovial foam; 
But others fearlessly rush in, breast high, 
Laughing the salty water from their mouthes-- 
Heroes of the nursery. 


Robert Graves

This is a beauty, Carol! Lush color and texture . . . the perfect balance between knife and brush. Exquisite sense of space and that tiny red umbrella---masterful! (Oops! that's Linda's word . . . I agree!!!)
