little children cheery
whitish teeth amid
chuckling faces
little hands, little legs
sunburnt sandblazed faces
on wind swept beach
a sandcastle taking shape

each tap, each chuckle
a new feat done
the rolling sea playing rhythm
to the orchestration
of a dream carved in
the stars and the moon

Sandcastle in a sandwall
a little muddy pool at the edge
little boys and girls shaping
their future on the beach
their parents playing cheerleaders
