On a hill at the beach

Spread your wings, dear child, and fly
to where the green sea meets blue sky;
run on the crests of gentle waves
and grab the sunlight as it raves
about the brightness of the day;
float with the sea gulls as they sway
upon the friendly winds, and dive
with playful dolphins as they jive
in the cool waters of the bay.

    Each progressive syllable adds delight to this wonderful verse. At the conclusion I couldn't help but notice the sand at my feet. Really great writing, my friend.... Jake
