At the beach, my favourite place,
The wind blowing my hair into my face,
A stranger approaches to chit chat;
To be polite about this and that.
Amongst the grassy dunes, sandwich in hand,
My toes drying out in the gritty sand,
The ice cream van goes tinkling past,
So I go to buy a Fab at last.
Near the end of the pier I’ve opened my book,
But now I’ve got to take another look
At the surfers, learning to surf down below
Falling and splashing everywhere they go.
I lie down to sunbathe under blue skies,
Yet clouds roll in over seagulls’ cries,
As the rain starts to fall and won’t leave me alone
I decide it’s best if I just go back home.
Here on the sofa with tea at my side,
I don’t have to worry about high or low tide;
I’m determined to see, by hook or by crook,
Whatever will happen next in my book!
