Friday poem: Mine

Here’s another poem by Lilian Moore. Is the plastic sand pail really what you want for your own…?

Mine – Lilian Moore

I made a sand castle.
In rolled the sea.
            “All sand castles
            belong to me—
            to me,”
said the sea.
I dug sand tunnels.
In flowed the sea.
            “All sand tunnels
            belong to me—
            to me,”
said the sea.
I saw my sand pail floating free.
I ran and snatched it from the sea.
            “My sand pail
            belongs to me—
            to ME!”
