She Walks On By!
written by Katy Durnford 08-04-2018

She sits on the bench
smelling the air
with a bonnet over her hair
resting whilst having a cup of tea
before walking to the sea

so she gathers her speed along the way
stepping over the chains on the quay
a flutter of nerves as she passes me
making her way to the sea

with a pasty for lunch she eats
now sits on the river seats
watching the world go by
watching the boats sail past

she walks to the sea in a pink dress
the gulls pick at the mess
in a jcket going past
in the sunshine while nets are cast

so she goes oninto the day
she sits at the beach to stay
idles the time in the heat
watch out for her on the seats!

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