The Soothing Sea

by Jem Croucher

I have lost count the number
of poems I have written
about the sea in Sussex
as really, I am smitten
So, if I only wrote of water
would you think less of me?
for really, if the truth be told
it’s best beside the sea

I can sit here hour on hour
beside the soothing waves
and gaze out at its fathoms
on sultry summer days
For me it’s inspiration
of it I’ll never tire
It prompts my words and writing
and builds in me a fire

Sometimes the sunshine glistens
like diamonds out there
so it would be quite selfish
these moments not to share
This preciousness, this richness
makes me a wealthy man
so I’ll gladly share some with you
(At least, that is the plan)

Its wide expanse, its changing form
its moving tides and more
all taken in and captured
from hours down on the shore
So I’ll just keep on writing
of my passion and then share
Something of the sea with you
as nothing can compare.
