I have a beach of shingle mixed
with golden sea-washed sand
Its grandeur and its mystery
forged by God’s own hand


I have a river winding through
the valley from the sea
It’s tidal waters flowing
as they meander gracefully


I have a range of rolling hills
behind the Sussex Weald
Chalk-clad downs and pathways
Filled with many types of field


I have midst all of this my home
it is a special place to be
In Shoreham on the Sussex coast
with the river, hills and sea

    Reminds me of how Matthew Arnold talked of shingled beaches in “Dover Beach.”
