Applause - Poem by Marjorie Dakin

When the sea
fell upon the shore
like applause,
our sand castles
washed away,
our footprints
left no trace,
no voice was heard
above the sea gulls call

Next year you'll build
another one
and then another year
another one
When their summers come
our footprints
will return the most
applause heard
above the sea gulls call
