Hello Short Sands Beach

by Bennett Quillen

 

Of course, of course, —

No introduction needed;

Met oftimes before.

 

Your display of enthusiasm, —

Of course, I noticed

With mild surprise the greeting:

 

The greenish-gray mosaic,

Mottled with taffy-like white,

Skipping and jumping along the shore.

 

Ah, but now a gentler salutation

On the new day, —

Filled with quietness

Passing in review.

 

We’ll meet again erelong,

But with two whom you’ve never met:

Do show enthusiasm, but tempered, —

As they are so young.
