Riverside view

by Jem Croucher


On the river at Shoreham
the water is clear
In this place that I love
and hold very dear
The boats on the mudflats
with the tide on the turn
Lie at rest by the pontoons
with bow against stern

And I stand for a moment
by the riverside flow
Where the blue of the sky
is reflected below
A view that is very
familiar to me
Yet never to tire of
at Shoreham-by-Sea
