DEVOTED

Devoted to the ocean am I,
ever since I was a small fry.

Daddy taught me to swim,
the first time I was in with him.

Diving from the steps at the pier,
the higher the dive, the louder the cheer.

Few things compare to a skinny dip,
running in unseen in the nip.

In summer when the seawater heats,
I just can't wait to bathe my feet.

Even in winter when seagulls screech,
it's soothing to walk along the beach.

Cares and worries drift away
as I walk along the bay.

Blessed am I to live close by,
when devoted to the ocean am I.

Hi Ilene. Lovely as always to see you here. Yes...as the song goes "Thank God we're surrounded by water." here in Ireland.
