Stones Strewn About

Rocks on the Beach
Stones strewn about
All over the beach
Scattered in piles,
Stretching for miles
Such clatter and roar
as the waves wash them o’er
And yet, I press on

One foot
in front of the other
One shoe
just clearing the hazard
Whilst the other shoe sinks
in the sand

Ah, such effort and care must I take
To make sure I don’t twist m
y ankle
Or break my toe
On this stone or that
Or the millions or so that lie up ahead
Happily, those behind can do me no harm—

Unless I turn 'round
And run back among
Those stones strewn about
All over the beach
