    Jennifer Verny-Franks

    Hysterical seagulls screaming with laughter,
    Kids dipping nets into murky green water,
    Bright little boats strain at ropes in the bay,
    Sailors by evening, accountants by day.
    Pale sulky boys, their girls who just giggle,
    Old ladies, thin ladies, ladies who wiggle,
    Mud-covered dogs, slurping with joy,
    Gran’dad in shorts, once again just a boy.
    Blue skies or grey skies, red skies at night,
    Any old time is a painter’s delight,
    Me with the sketchbook I keep in my mind,
    Busily scribbling the scenes that I find.
    (And that’s why I do it!)
