It’s the right time of year for one of my personal favourites – hope you like it too.
Mañana Seaside Days
Seaside siblings and a crèche of cousins,
Deckchair damsels dashing hopes of dozens,
Countless crabby tickled toes a’paddling,
Rock pools – splash! – soft sands in sunlight dazzling,
Scabby shins sprawl sandily, stickily,
Toes touch, tease towel tents, torment trickily,
Lulling listening, laughs linger lacily,
Sunshine shimmers on sunhats racily,
Seagulls sigh while seashells gleam and glitter,
Hot sunny seaside days, sparkling sitters,
Slosh, slosh shallows, shush shushing shingle hosts
Mañanaseaside days at Cornish coast.
