No Roses grow

Post by Vegaskip » Sun Nov 08, 2015 5:34 pm

No crosses mark the ocean waves;
No monuments of stone.
No roses grow on sailor's graves,
The Sailor rests alone

His tributes are the sea gulls' sweeps,
Forever wild and free . . .
And teardrops that his sweetheart weeps
To mingle with the sea

I have heard the verse before and thought the painting fitted.
