Message in a bottle

I got your message in a bottle
encrusted with salt
crystals glistening in brine
in time to the crustaceans’ rhyme
the mandolin strings made music
by the bonfire on the beach
and there was a moment of
being lost, lost in time
does the salt not sweep you away
do you feel the power of the surges
of salty spray as they reach out
in misty ghostly swirls of refreshment
on your clothing and in your face
grab me a tin mug and a pewter platter
and serve me up some seaweed
and we’ll toast to the days of old
the good old days by the sea
when you were you
and I was me
