.4. Seaside Pleasure - Poem by David Threadgold

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

    As one who lives by the sea-side I know what you are saying is right, simple pleasures are sometimes the best,
