Castles in the Sand

Castles in the Sand

Along the bay the gulls array
Around the castles in the sand
They sail the wind that blows its songs
Across the bits of bottles dropped

Picked up and beaten on the rocks
The bits of bottles glint in spots
And shine like little diamonds cut
Trapped on the beach with other stuff

The shards of bottles glitter out
And twinkle in the noonday sun
But castles in the sand are there
And bashed by waves they need repair

So children come to patch them up
With little hands and paper cups
And careless feet to take them there
Across the bits of bottles dropped
