Sunlight on Sea-Water by Mark Twain

Sunlight on Sea-Water by Mark Twain is adapted from his book Following the Equator [1897]:

Nothing is so beautiful as a rose diamond with the light playing through it,

except that uncostly thing which is just like it—

wavy sea-water with the sunlight playing through it and striking a white-sand bottom.
