Seal

On the rocks by an island
with the tide going out
I saw a seal lounging
and gave him a shout

He glanced up at me
and waved a flipper to say
I should have a good time
whilst at Whitley Bay

So with the lighthouse above me
I watched him a while
Then went on my way
full of joy with a smile

Whitley Bay

St Mary’s lighthouse on the coast
here at Whitley Bay
On a coastal island
at the tail end of a day

With rain flecks in the evening breeze
we crossed at ebbing tide
Careful not to slip and fall
though the slipway was quite wide

And from the island summit
‘Neath the white walls of the tower
we looked out to the northern sea
and its majestic power

This really is lovely place
in North East England fair
So we stayed a little while
and just revelled being there
