Day 302 - Naughty at the Seaside

Dedicated to my Daddy who read the book a million times over to me

Tell me the story again, she pleads
Sifting the sand between her toes
The one where they get caught up in the sea weeds
Nodding she can see that Daddy knows
So he puts on the funny face he saves
For only the best and most heroic tales
In which the adventurers hide in caves
Quickly pulling down their give-away sails
She walks on proudly sure she is the one
Who shall master the pirate's vast ship
A perfect day in the seaside sun
Water bright blue inviting a dip
Into tales of pirates who the wide world roam
Nothing else in the stories ever felt so like home
