That is a lovely poem, Johnn!
Glad you like it, come sit by me and we’ll watch the gulls for a while and sip some coffee from my thermos.
I have an idea:
You bring the wife, I’ll bring the boyfriend, and my little stereo box, and we’ll all sit there in the sand, as the sun sets, and listen to some music by Beethoven, Mozart, and Vivaldi, and tell stories about the years gone by.
And, then you can read to us all, some of your favorite poetry.
