To grin or not to grin

by Jem Croucher

And there out to the distant West
Gold fades across the sea
As twilight swiftly passes
and the night time comes to me

Shingle crunches ‘neath my feet
Here on Shoreham Beach
So grateful that I live so close
and it’s in easy reach

So I pause there for a moment
to take this glory in
and ask myself the question
‘To grin or not to grin?’
