Today the Sage family and the Hasty family went to North Hampton for a day at the beach. I have to say HastyKid is a natural and is dreaming of becoming the next big surfer girl. She had a blast riding the waves with Sage Jr and after getting buried in the sand, Sage Jr made her look like a mermaid, we decided to eat sandwiches and write a poem together. Below the poem started out with Sage Jr, then HastyKid, then Hasty, then Sage. Wifey Sage decided to just soak up the sun and enjoy our genius.
I would like to say the beach and ocean swimming is way more fun than I ever thought it looked. After the beach we went to have lobster and Sage had to show us how to eat it. Sage Jr. got a pregnant lobster and let me just say I am really, really glad I had just finished mine or I would have lost my appetite. The food was incredible as we ate out on a boathouse patio looking at the sailboats on the ocean listen to the 80’s greatest hits.
Hasty Kid and I have been texting Hasty Husband pictures of our adventure and I think it was the picture of the lobster that made him wish he had come with us. I plan on bringing him back to Boston for our next anniversary because I know he will love it here.
Without further ado…here is our Poetic Quartet:
Written by Sage Jr, HastyKid, Hasty, and Sage Doyle
Nothing alludes the world of waves
like a sandcastle built on land
Seagulls fly by like mystical dragons
and beholding this wonder, here I am
What is the truth to waves that have no mercy
or of a sun that burns a fire into my eyes
What does the earth hold more dear
than the boundless tide which man cannot surmise
What is time to forms that have no place
or to the child on the beach full of laughter and grace
What becomes of those who disappear without a trace
It is better to question than to merely keep apace.
