Poetry Friday

Seaside by Shirley Hughes

Sand in the sandwiches,
Sand in the tea,
Flat wet sand running
Down to the sea.
Pools full of seaweed,
Shells and stones,
Damp bathing suits
And ice cream cones.
Waves pouring in
To a sand-castle moat.
Mend the defenses!
Now we’re afloat!
Water’s for splashing,
Sand is for play.
A day at the sea
Is the best kind of day.

This is another poem John memorized in 1st grade. Perfect for this time of year.
