Beside The Seaside, Beside The Sea

By Robin Tulley

The wonder of the seaside is
every small child’s dream
Paddling in the rock pools,
different creatures to be seen.
Building lots of sandcastles,
gambolling on the sand,
Staying in a guesthouse and
feeling rather grand.
Be it silver sand or a pebbly
beach, it matters not at all
If the sun I is shining or there’s
a threat of a passing squall
Because their’s a lot to do and
the days are warm and long.
Enjoy the most of them
for  all too soon they
will be gone.
Punch and Judy, Donkey rides
there is so much there to do
The Funfair rides, the pitch and
putt to mention just a few.
The stroll on the pier with saved
pocket money in your hand,
To enjoy all the amusements
and listen to the band.
Now so much older with
children of your own.
The sheer joy of introducing
them to the pleasures you
have known.
Once more you will indulge in
sun, pebbles, sand and sea
And think back to childhood
days that were happy and
carefree.
