Once when I was young and free,
I embarked and sailed the seas.
Just as my daughters are doing now.

I envy them their youth and vigor.
I used also have an amazing figure.
Like them, but I digress.

Arriving late on Santorini isle,
I opted to stop and stay a while.
Headed directly for the beach.

The sun had just begun to set
when I thought of getting my feet wet.
Having passed over scorching sand.

There was a band playing nearby.
To have a listen I thought I'd lie
on the still warm glistening grains.

Next thing I knew it was pitch black.
Surprised I thought well fancy that.
They must have sung a lullaby.

Thank you Line. My eldest rang me from China this morning. She told me how they had climbed above the clouds to a golden statue on top of a mountain. It took them six hours. Next, the terracotta soldiers. No wonder I was reliving my youth.

It is lovely Tom but to be honest, one old timer to another, there's a LOT of steps to climb.
