Houseboat

Walked along the riverbank
the tide full on the turn
Admiring all the houseboats
moored along the berm

Spanning one hundred ten years plus
their eclectic painted beams
proudly claim the seaward side
of Shoreham life it seems

There are one and forty vessels here
each one with pride of place
With maritime claim on history
Protected here with grace
