S: Children Playing on the Beach
BC: For Gabe and Ellie from Mama Fran and Papa Lyle
FC: Children Playing on the Beach
1: Children playing on the beach,
2: Nowhere to hide,
3: Nowhere to seek.
4: Using their minds
5: To play their games,
6: Running from waves that lap at their feet.
8: Running and jumping,
9: Enjoying the waves!
10: Then running and laughing,
11: And darting away!
12: They're digging a hole, a really big hole,
13: A hole big enough to high dive!
14: Children playing on the beach,
16: Children that are nine,
23: And Five!
24: With sand on their legs and between their toes,
26: With sand in their hair,
27: And soggy clothes,
28: What an adventure it must be, Playing in the sand and feeling free.
33: I'll always remember the laughter and sounds,
34: And the freedom to run on the wet, sandy ground.
35: Children see sand, dreams come to their mind. I see young children created and designed.
36: So I stand with the children on the beach,
38: Watching them play no hide or seek,
40: Spending the moment through children's eyes,
42: As they have their adventure on the beach.
