When I am adventurous 

And I feel inclined,

I wander down to the sea,

And along the shoreline,

Searching for items that interest me.

Colourful pebbles, broken glass,

Bleached by the sun,

Smooth from the waves’ caress,

And shells, delicate, exotic,


I wrap them in sack cloth,

To protect them.

Today i have found

And brought home,

Amongst others,

A starfish,

It is my gift to you.
