Poem Friday 02/22/2013 – But Today It Ended In Tears


DSC_0096

The alarm went off at 4am still dark not yet dawn
The only thing from my mouth is a constant yawn

Yes the surf is up and Grandson needs that fix
School is not for three hours so can surf till six

admittedly it was a beautiful morning once the sun did rise
But looking back staying in bed would have been rather wise

For the first hour and a half it was all smooth and great
Surfing up and down waves and waiting for the next wave talking to his mate

Get away from those bloody rocks I would give him a yell
I don’t know if he heard I could not tell

Anyway to cut a long story short
Surfing can be rather a dangerous sport

He was heeding to my call that time was running out
It was close to six, time to get out I had to shout

Well the next wave was a beauty as you can see
So smooth, so long, great height, perfect as it could be

Unfortunately on the wave he had to avoid his surfing mate
Stayed on the wave to long, now heading for the rocks at a fast rate

The end result was not a pretty sight
Lots of bruising, blood but he is alright

Not the same for board, damaged rather bad
no fins left, big scratch, costly, going to make his bank balance very sad

Surfing is a great love that can be with him for many years
A love affair to excite him, he will be back again tomorrow, but today it ended in tears
