solent breeze at southsea and portsmouth a great city   5 comments

waves rush rolling at me

crashing spectacularly

pebbles swiftly dragged away

destiny unknown today

gulls fly and scream calling out

on the breeze

solent breezes along the beach

people gaze endlessly

walking home and drifting by

some people say hello others say hi

palmerston follys sit and stand still

gazeing up to portsdown hill

spinnaker rises majestically

welcome to portsmouth and beautiful southsea

a city full of fame and history

where many a great people from history

have gatherd and planned and fought there way

including the romans they had there day

chariots have been heard in portchester too

ghostly goings on in wymering manor still haunted to this day

well portsmouth has had its role to play

nelsons beautiful victory once sailed from this grand harbour

i see before me to copenhagen ,northstar ,trafalger and ushanti

but alas were small navy today

goverment cuts have slowly faded the shipping industry away

guidhall is proud place to see

where many great name have perfomed for thee

and if you gaze out too see

Isle of wight is a place to see

still standing gracefully.
