by Jem Croucher


I’m in my favourite place
with a beer close at hand
the sky is clear blue
sun’s glistening on sand
The tide’s going out
there’s a warm, gentle breeze
and I can feel the sun’s warmth
on my legs and my knees
There’s a haze over Brighton
with Seven Sisters in view
the beach huts are open
several painted anew
The sea is reflecting
the deep blue of the sky
with bright coloured boats
sailing gracefully by
Down here on the beach
it’s just me and the sea
which to my mind is always
the best place to be
