.4. Seaside Pleasure


On white sandy beaches
Midst bucket and spade
Are towering sandcastles
Children had made

Moats filled with water
Collected from sea
Within plastic cups
We had once holding tea

With cockleshell cladding
To walls on four sides
Brought onto the beach
With the turning of tides

Happy are they
With the simplest of things
On white sandy beaches
What pleasure it brings

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
