DISTANT RUMBLES BYE THE SEA   7 comments


Distance rumbles sound loud and clear

as seas wash up the shore and pebbles disappear

cormorants fish and terns soar

seagulls swoop into the downpour

flags flutter in breeze

and people swim

and enjoy themselves too

day at the seaside

with an ice cream too

walking along the prom

as brass bands play a tune

merry go rounds spin at the fair

as rollercoaster go up stairs

and rolls down too

kids scream and parents laugh too

sun try to shine as break in the clouds appear

dogs run around barking

and people fish on the pier

Palmerston follies out at sea

stand the test of time guarding southsea

they were built a long time ago

fortresses at sea

keep the french out

and protect the southsea

and Portsmouth too

back in nelson time when victory was due

a time when Portsmouth was the home of the navy too

a day out in southsea and stroll in fresh air too

beauty of the coast and my home too.

  1. Absolutely perfect poem. Takes me right to that very sea side!

  2. I love the picture you painted with this poem.. A word of constructive criticism: instead of using the word “too” so much, try to think of an alternate word or phrase.. Great poem, nonetheless 🙂
