The Beach In April
written by Katy Durnford 08-04-2018

By the sea it is writ in sand
where people play on the land
boats go past the pier
and fishing nets take up their rears

gulls fly high spying food
and people pray they dont attack
people sitting idly by
whilst the cricket ball takes a wack!

sandcastles pave the beach
where on the sand the tides reach
seaweed strewns the bay
where the people lay

shells top the castles one by one
until all the shells are gone
children swim in the sea
until it is time for tea

out walking the dogs on leads
with tops laced with beads
we sit on the benches drinking coffee
whilst the children munch on toffee

waves crash on the shore
with stories of old folk lore
the adults tell the tales of bygone days
whilst in the sand the children play

"Walk with the Angels, for they are amongst us. Believe and you will see!"
