Beside the Sea

Listen to the lapping bay

With tales to tell

In each brush of a wave

And a fresh shore breeze

Beside the sea

Or play with a fish

Too small or none at all

No matter, for on this day

Wind and water wash cares away

Beside the sea

Study the birds

They know when to pick

Of salted bounty spread

Or when to rise and flee

Beside the sea

Secret treasure beyond measure

If only you’ll look and see

Weighty fog now lifted

Dormant senses awaken

Beside the sea

A child again

Born of whim and pleasure

Seeking none other

But to explore and wonder

Beside the sea
