Along The Seashore.


I walk along the golden sand

Just looking out to sea,

The waves lap gently at my feet

They seem to speak to me.


They tell me of the life I’ve lead

The good things and the bad,.

My life has had much more joy

Than those of which I’m sad


The water reaches out for me

To show my life that’s been,

And still there’s time for me to live

To see wonders never seen.


So as I walk towards my end

Still many years to go,

I walk beside that glorious sea

With joy in what I know.

        Beautiful poem and wonderful message. That is how I feel when I look upon our vast Lake Michigan. Cannot be sad when looking at such things.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Christina and so true we just cannot be sad when we are with Nature's beauty.


        • Jeremy Leach

          I like the simple but well-written delivery and the message. It feels nice to read out loud too, which I think is a good test of a poem

          • Goldfinch60

            So kind Jeremy, thank you.

              A beautiful rhythm, that has painted a serene scene in such a brutal world.

              Bravo Andy, for sharing such an uplifting four stanzas.

              I hope that all is well!
