Come down to the water
My true love sang to me
Come see the sailing ships
And watch the tide with me

Come down to the water
I called back to my love
Let’s seek shells and toss
Pebbles, and rescue starfish

Come down to the water
Let’s watch the sun sink
‘neath waves turned golden
With its waning light

Let’s sit together at the wharf
Dangling our feet and laugh
As waves tickle our toes
And crust them with salt

Oh, do come down
To the water with me
It is there life begins and
Where our love remains

    I like this and another you wrote. For some reason no comment form on the other. ??

    Considering my own love of the ocean and all the things watery, I related to this poem. You captured the magic of the waterfront.

    without knowing which other you mean, I cannot answer as to why the comment form is not open, Bonnie. Thanks, though.
