Coastal Symphony

The meeting of sky and sea

Is a tempestuous affair

Where the North wind conducts its symphony

On a rugged coastline of grass and air

Punctuated by squalling seagulls flying free

At evening time the sunset’s blood

Reflected on the rushing foam

Lends colour to the steely flood

The sea then in a quiet mood

Thrumming throughout the night

Joins the sky until first light
