At The Sea-Side

Rating: 3.1

When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore.

My holes were empty like a cup.
In every hole the sea came up,
Till it could come no more.

The first poem I ever recited in assembly at Primary School. I was very young and found it easy to remember. I was surprised because the Headmistress had never heard of it and thought I'd written it! I don't think I'd ever seen the sea!
