‘Tide Pools’

You can’t measure a tide pool

with a slide rule –

you’d be a fool to try:

And that is why

I now leave my slide rule at home.


Tide pools are often very well hidden…

by the tide being in;

but, raise a shout

when the tide flows out!


Then, is the time

when observational glances can be used,

although, chances are, that the variety of things,

in a tide pool, will leave you a little confused

(as it does me);

but just see what you can see,

and perhaps draw things down in a sketch book,

or just keep looking

and be amazed by the inhabitants

of the ‘not so’ deep.
