Melbournes Closest Beach - Poem by margaret haig

Let's get on a train today, to travel to the seaside,
I'd like to get there quickly, before the rise of the tide;
Now if I go by car, it takes time to find somewhere to park,
So! Travel by tram to port Melbourne, but I won't catch a shark.

Let's get on a train tomorrow, and have a picnic at the sea,
I thought of going to williamstown, how about coming with me;
Lots of tiny antique shops, such tasty take away food too,
Try a spot of fishing on the pier, might catch a crab or shoe.

Let's go for a long ride from Melbourne central, down to the bay,
What about a nice ferry ride, and feel the waves spray;
Go to black rock and back, arrive at station pier for tea,
Then try some thing from a cafe, but it'll be fish and chips for me.

Let's go for a jog to St Kilda, try swimming salt water baths too,
Then get a lend of a bicycle, and ride the esplanade for you;
Lots of sand and sunshine, watch the kite boarding as well,
But watch out for the skaters and skate boards, try ring the bell.

Let's go on a long slow walk, along the beach at Altona,
And as you look at the sunset, smell the food aroma;
Think of the garden of Eden, and Adam with the animals there,
Then tell others about thanking God, we need the story to share.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
