By The Sea

What fun to ride the rolling waves,
To catch the breakers in your hand,
To skip over each successive crest,
To chase each wavy band!
What fun to dance atop the waters,
To splash amid the bubbling foam,
To swim above and dive below,
And ride each wavelet home!
What fun to chase the glistening fish,
And peer beneath for corals rare,
To hunt around for drowsing oysters,
To just laze below and stare.
What better then, when happily spent,
To be washed up on the shore,
To sprawl beneath the browning sun,
And then to dive back in for more!
