When I was a child, I enjoyed stories about horses rising out of the sea foam. I could almost see the horses in the rolling waves at Myrtle Beach, SC. Come! Catch a wave with me as you read the some lines from the book!

girl resting on her float in the waves

  Ten thousand white horses
  Will rise from the sea.
  I wonder where
  They'll carry me.

  I'll try to catch a few thousand
  And ride them to shore,
  Ten thousand white horses
  And more.

      From out of the white caps,
      The horses now come.
      They're skirting, flirting,
      Proceeding, receding.

      The little ones whisper,
      "Come play!"
      As they quickly
      Are slipping away.

Ten thousand white horses
Will rise from the sea.
I wonder where they'll carry me.

I'll try to catch a few thousand
And ride them to shore,
Ten thousand white horses and more.

Diez mil caballos blancos
se levantarán sobre el mar.
Me pregunto, ¿dónde me llevarán?

Atraparé a unos mil
y los cabalgaré hasta la orilla,
diez mil caballos blancos y más.

From out of the white caps,
The horses now come.
They're skirting, flirting,
Proceeding, receding.

The little ones whisper,
"Come play!"
As they quickly are slipping away.

Desde las capas blancas,
ahora llegan los caballos.
Ellos se esquivan, se mueven,
prosiguen y retroceden.

Los pequeñitos susurran,
"¡Ven a jugar!",
mientras se alejan rápidamente.
