Barefoot on the Beach

The days of Summer are here
On this beautiful earth sphere
This season of shine
The beach we do pine
Our time to appear draws near

The day we have awaited has arrived
To the seaside we carefully drive
The kids and their daddy
Singing Showaddywaddy
The excitement in us now thrives

In adventure they play on the dunes
Through the reeds the breeze plays a tune
A symphony so grand
As I'm barefoot on the sands
On this glorious sunny afternoon

For these days of Summer cheer us all
As the sounds of happy kids en-thrall
Our day is now ended
As darkness has descended
My kids and I had a ball

The days of summer are too short but you describe the sentiment beautifully.

I can relate to that from time to time in the past. Don't get out on beach much any more, but I do have nice memories.

I could really picture you playing on the beach with your children, James. Like the musical sound of the wind blowing through the reeds. Great entry for Francine's fun contest. Winning wishes headed to the Highlander. Love, Carolyn
