Down by the seaside

by Jem Croucher

Spent two hours on the water
beyond the outer buoy
Half a mile or so from shore
moments of pure joy
A gentle swell from rising tides
bobbed me around a bit
Watching sailors from the club
out there enjoying it

Then later when the sea lay still
to the beach I then repaired
And soaked the sunshine up a while
as many others shared
Bank holidays are made for this
for times of idle pleasure
Made perfect by a gleaming sun
for all our seaside leisure
