Charmouth Beach

“Sand in the Sandwhiches,

Sand in the tea,

Flat wet sand running

Down to the Sea.

Pools full of seaweed,

Shells and stones,

Damp bathing suits

And ice cream cones.

Waves pouring in

To a sand-castle moat.

Mend the defenses!

Now we’re afloat!

Water’s for splashing,

Sand is for play.

A day at the sea

is the best kind of day.”
