She lay on the beach

Within surf’s reach

Listening to the lapping

Wave continually splashing

The sun rose high in the sky

With little else to occupy

Her in this moment in time

Nothing could be more sublime

The noise of the city far away

She could be a castaway

Cares, they floated on by

On the breeze as if to defy

All that was and should be

Sitting beside her drinking ice tea
