Lancing Beach II

by Jem Croucher


Lightest of breeze
Salt on the air
Sounds of frivolity
From the sand there
Green on the shingle
Cabbage White
Occasional bird
In lazy flight

Blue of the sky
Blue of the sea
Soft fluffy cloud
Soft buzzing bee
There in the distance
Worthing pier
Sometimes hazy
Sometimes clear

Moored out to sea
The Fishing boats
Keeping safe distance
As swimmers float
And out to the east
is Brighton’s sprawl
Its highrise buildings
Standing tall

This is my haven
For summers’ spent
And here I’m at
My most content
So perfect now
The weather’s fine
Is Lancing Beach
In summertime
