Autumn On A Hebridean Beach

Autumn On A Hebridean Beach


If I were a washed-up shell
This is where I’d wish to dwell..


In autumn colours do not pall
Upon the beach Camas nan Gall.


Spreading fans of seaweed lace
A gown the mermaid sure to grace.


For where she sits upon her rock
She dare not wear a boring frock.


At this masked ball the crab it seems
wears fungi dress for Halloween.


This ‘knitting’ washed up on the shore
Has all the grace of high couture.


Regret the faded rose no more
It’s hues you’ll find along this shore.
