A day at the beach | Peter Matthews

Puffy white clouds

avoiding the crowds

buckets and spades

put on the shades

ice creams we lick `em

seagulls they nick `em

toddlers shout

family day out

sun, sea, and sand

isn’t it grand!


Peter Matthews, a country boy at heart, lives with his wife of 47 years in the suburbs of Nottingham, England.  His greatest achievement is that he has aged fairly gracefully but has avoided growing up.  Peter has written poetry from the age of sixteen and blogs regularly at www.pollymermaid.wordpress.com.
