A DAY AT THE BEACH

 

As I sat on the staircase

And dreamed myself away

Anywhere anytime

Somewhere elseā€¦

 

On the Texas coast

The Gulf of Mexico

Enchantment by the sea

We did not have to travel far

 

Volleyball in the sand

Just a little trip

Another world

Sand on the beach

 

Stretched as far as you could see

Waves rolled to the shore

To crash over you and me

A large picnic basket

 

And a blue ice chest

A day at the beach

What a gift it was

Take pictures of day

 

Memories stored deep in the heart

Would not soon fade away

The sun set in the west

A bonfire

 

To light up the beach

Soon it was time

To shake out the sand

Fold up the quilt

And return to our everyday
