Beaches Of Delaware - Poem by Slava Olchevski

On the 4th of July, to try new swimwear
We drove to the beaches of Delaware

Three girls, a boy and poodle Jasmine
Were staying in Dover, in hotel Sleep Inn

Bowers and Slaughter beaches in Delaware
Were muddy and warm, but swimmers beware

Masses of dead horse-shoe crabs that stink
Sand sharks circling near and jelly-fish stings

Vicious horse-flies and no life-guards
We had it all, the whole nine yards

Rehoboth & Dewey on Atlantic shore
Waves stirring the sand and breaking with a roar

They stretch to horizon as far as you see
The blue sky above the limitless sea

The Sun in zenith stands all day long
Scorching the skin for a tan lifelong

The sand packs the heat, like a hot plate
By the end of day you will lose some weight

We are back home, all tired and sore
Hey Delaware, we’ll come back for more!
