Night on the beach



I’ve no feet of clay

Just sand between my toes

What simple pleasures

 

Others have all gone

The moon is my companion

And a pair of gulls

 

I can relax now

Far from the lies of the world

Away from my cares

 

I rest on the shore

Night's cover eases my old mind

Worries are all fixed

 

Asleep on the beach

Woken by a mermaids breath         

Angels singing songs

 

Dare I snatch a kiss?

No! they will just box my ears

And laughing swim away

  1. Chuckles! The pleasures of those afforded the privileges of leisure can be amusingly told. Nicely oldegg!

  5. Wish I could find that beach. Sounds perfect. It's cold (3 degrees) and snowy here. ;)

  10. You had from that first stanza, from "no feet of clay" to "Just sand between my toes". Clever and fun.
