We love to Bee by the Sea

A is, for argument’s sake, Apple

B is for Bee,

C is for the Chive Mind

that thinks that D is for Dapple,

or Daffodil – which do you choose?

E is for Ever,

F is for Forever,

G is neither;

but G is for Grae, me.

And I love to bee by the sea.

The sea – a song

The sea is so invigorating,

it brings my heart such joy

I’ve lived upon the ocean

since I was a little buoy;

floating around,floating around,

a cloud in the sky-

metaphorically speaking,

that cloud is I.

Rather the bather

Rather the bather than me

taking a dip in the sea;

It’s too cold to endure,

so I’ll stay on the shore,

a choice of which I agree.

Where is the rain that they promised?

Where is the rain that they promised?

The Sun is now shining on me;

I wanted to get wet to the skin,

like the fishes that swim in the sea.

There are no Rainbows

There are no Rainbows

under the sea.

I don’t know

if that’s true or not;

but, it seems a distinct possibility

to a person like me.

A Bee and a Butterfly went to Sea.

A Bee and a Butterfly went to sea

in a dark blue sailing boat;

whilst on the sea,

they drank green tea,

and had no adventures to note.


But, on the way back,

the sky turned black,

the boat capsized and sank.

‘Oh, no!’ you cried, ‘They must have died!

Or what Saviour can we thank?’


However, the Bee and the Butterfly

did not die,

they simply flew away,

to sail again, upon glistening seas,

on some such other day .

See Saw – a tongue-twister?

I saw the sea-saw,

and the see-saw saw me;

I went to sea,

and I saw that the see-saw went to see, too;

At sea, I saw the sea,

and I saw that the see-saw see the sea, too;

I met Saucy Sue at sea,

and I saw the see-saw meet Saucy Sue at sea – didn’t you?

I wish…

I wish I was a poet

a-swimming in the sea;

or do I mean a fish –

it’s all gone wrong for me.

To See the Sea

She went to sea

to see the sea,

and whilst she was there

she saw me;

she turned around

and headed home

no more to sail,

no more to roam.

A Thousand Years

I’ve watched you for a thousand years,

I’ll watch a thousand more,

I am the one who helps your boat

reach safely to the shore.

For when you are in peril

a-sailing on the sea;

you might needs pray to someone

and that someone might be me.
