It’s really nice down here

I walked the long familiar beach
where houses made of wood
formed from disused railway stock
against the weather stood
All are now long gone of course
but their garden walls remain
Reminding me that wind and sea
will always stake its claim

I walked on past Widewater
the lagoon blue as the sky
all the way to Lancing
with the sea just there close by
And it’s really nice down here today
now school holidays are done
Just me, the sea and solitude
and the warm September sun
