The Sea


"When I go down by the sandy shore

I can think of nothing I want more

Than to live by the booming sea

As the seagulls flutter round about me

I can run about--when the tide is out


With the wind

and the sand

and the sea all about

And the seagulls are swirling and diving for fish


Oh-to live by the sea is my only wish."


This little poem was written by Jacqueline Bouvier when she was ten years old.

I'm so lucky to live so close to the ocean and the bay!

Happy weekend hugs,

Hi Barb,
I love your blog! And this poem speaks to how free I feel when I walk on the beach or watch the Ocean environment from the picture window of Las Brisas in Laguna ;)
