The Beach

May 13, 2008
By Aaron Culver, Dagsboro, DE

‘Twas a beautiful day,
(as I remember it so);
The waves of the beach,
Gently crashing to and fro.

The sunlight, it glistened,
Proposing a smile;
I listened, and laughed,
And gazed for a while.

I sat upon the shore,
My toes in the sand;
While peacefully hearing,
The gentle wave band.

And there went the birds,
So peacefully by;
They paused, only to rest,
Then continued on high.

The sun then went down,
And the moon I began to see;
As I laid upon the shore,
Pondering how tomorrow would be.

This will certify that the above work is completely original
