Wedding Cake Island - Coogee, Australia

See the surf comes rolling ever onwards
Meets the land and melts in creamy foam
Breaks upon the shore and scatters quickly
Like a million pearls let loose to roam

Watch the spray which melts in liquid sunshine
Tossed up from the bosom of the deep
High above in varied colors forming
Like the mermaids rising from their sleep

From Across the Sea by Ernest Kaleihoku Kaai (1881-1961)

Oh mermaid boy, come back, come back to the bosoomy deep of Coogee's keep!
"Bosoomy"? Is that another BLACK SECRET?
