I'm Wet And Watery

After spending time with four of the grandchildren today and making up poems with them, I did this little piece for fun. I will get the poem that my four year old grandaughter created on my blog as soon as I can copy it. She wouldn't have wanted me to take it home so I'll have to make a copy.

I'm Wet and Watery

Every day I visit the shore
Each day different to the one before.
If the trees are still and all is calm
My surface is glass,  a comforting balm.

I like these days and look forward to
Children splashing and crashing the blue.
I help them along with my happy spray
 They do it again and giggle and play.



Yachters out for a spot of sailing
And further out fishermen whaling.
While I hold myself still and as calm as can be
They give the whales chase and sing merrily.
They have no idea I’m part of their crew
Making an effort, doing all I can do.

I’m little thought of most of the time,
So I love it when I can whip up my brine.
On blustery days I race into the coast
Huge arms of waves making the boast
That I am strong and make no mistake
If you get in my way, I’ll crush you like cake.
I bring debris with me, I throw it around
Flotsom and seaweed spread on the ground.
My angry time, brown and green churned
May do some damage but if you’ve learned
To keep your distance and always beware
We’ll get on fine,  you’ll keep your hair.

A great poem about the sea! Good luck with your new garden I always like obtaining cuttings from friends as not only do the plants come free but you have constant reminders of your friends too! Sarah x

Hi...Thank you for visiting my blog. I've been reading yours and I do love the poem. I don't have the talent to write poems, however I've lots of books with beautiful ones. Nice job. I will keep in touch and keep writing.
