Oh, Sand Castle Days

Sweet memories enhance
The backwards glance
Long into childhood's way,
Hours by the sea
Timeless, carefree
Where the sun brightly shone

Every day,
Looking out o'er the waves
Soft, memory saves
A joy that forever stays
Held deep in that part
Of one's innermost heart..

Of so happy,
dear sand-castle days!

~ John McLeod

Every day we have the opportunity to create our own sand castles - try to do so in the nature of a child and not an enters the element of play! 2nd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL


  1. Nice photo! Is that a butterfly? I also like the story you linked to.

  2. Thanks, Tim - no butterfly, just a leaf " 'pennon' flying from the battlements" (as someone commented on flickr)! :)
