Two boys at the beach


Took my boys to the beach today

For a nice little walk in the sand

Chasing gulls and chasing fish

Each boy thought it was grand


Danny came first

He laughed and he played

Grandpa came along

We walked a mile

But he walked three

Back and forth and around

He rolled in the surf

And dug in the sand

And gathered many shells

All the while he chattered away

Content and happy and free


TJ was next

Running full speed

Then suddenly slowing down

Sneaking up, stealthy and still

Trying to catch some gulls

Getting close before they can spook

And almost touching a few

Then turning around and

Racing the tide

Building tunnels in sand

Finishing up just in time

Before they wash away

The wave came up

Filled up his channel

And (much to his delight)

Turned his tunnels to mush


All in all a wonderful day

There’s no place I’d rather be

Than spending time with my awesome boys

On our vacation by the sea
