On the Ocean's Edge

Follow me down 
To the cold oceans playground
Where children dance and frolic
At building sandcastle dreams
That the sea will sluice away
Beginning its concerto

From the driftwood surfing waves 
Over the metronome melody
Of the gilded Herring Gull
And the rhythmic percussion
From the smoothed rolling pebbles
The symphony consumes

Softly hanging in the Atlantic winds
Just cresting over the song of dawn
The strings of the Willow reverberating 
In concert with the viola of first light…

    I am feeling the urge to go back and read poetry from earlier writing of my favorite poets today and this is the one I opened of yours Charlie. I truly enjoyed reading it today and it is one of your best. Love, Carol

    Charles, I love this! The sea is such an inspiration and comfort to me, and I am drawn to it more than any other place. Great write! Donna G.
