“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Jumping over waves, humming a pretty tune,
A little girl makes her way over to a seaweed clad dune.
Her hair is blowing, she is glowing, there is a twinkle in her eye,
Her head tilts back, she jumps up high, at that moment she can fly.
A giggle escapes her lips as she twirls around on her tip toes,
She watches a sea gull soar up high and straightens her hair bows.

Getting splashed by a colossal wave, she yells in sheer delight,
At that moment all is perfect with no such thing as fright.
Her lips are curling, she is twirling, she stops to strike a pose,
Her eyes close, she takes a deep breath, she rises up on her toes.
Anything is possible, no matter how big or small,
When she steps foot on the beach, she can accomplish it all.

The author's comments:
The beach is my second home; a place where I can let my let my hair down, relax, and just be me. When I was little, I could never believe how magical of a place the beach truly was and it's always stayed with me.
