The Beach has Soul


The Beach has Soul

Went to the beach today only a week into spring

Sunshine a cool breeze and no phone to ring

Drove three hours for a day of fun


I asked myself why we go through all this

But for her it‘s worth it a moment of bliss

Sand dunes with beach chairs lugged across



Better than summer I love this time of year

The waves are gentle the sky is clear

Low temps warm sun less people to deal with



Families know it’s all about kids

Shovels sandcastles and coolers with lids

Running and squealing with each cold wave



It is now seven-thirty see the sun’s orange hue

Can’t believe those kids are not turning blue

Three little ones still playing in the icy cold waves



The ocean’s beauty draws all to its shores

The beach has soul we keep coming back for more

Sunburns and jellyfish riptides and grit

Memories of fun we will never forget
