About the Poem

I was inspired to write this poem when my daughter was about 4 years old. We were on vacation in Florida at the time. She was perfectly content playing in the sand and running along the water's edge. She didn't need a friend to play with.

Her Playmate Is The Sea

I watch her from the door
As she plays along the shore

She digs her toes into the sand
Builds a castle from the land

A wave sweeps past her knees
She giggles, as if to tease

A bucket, shovel, sand and water
Easily occupy my daughter

She has a smile, when she looks up at me
My child so happy by the sea

She is alone, but not lonely
Her playmate is the sea.

This is a great poem. I am from Australia and the one thing i feel I belong to is the sea, I am never alone there or scared, just at peace with myself. And right now, I am away from home and I think about the ocean and the beach, and its somethinG i really miss, so when I read your poem, it made me smile, because its something my mum would say about me. :)
