A poetry Web site
worth reading.
First, he digs a circle he calls a moat,
and starts to build the towers of a castle
on the foundation of wet sand surrounded
by the still ring of water.
Soon the walls are sculptered as he dreams
of living in his own castle.  Windows are
etched in the indentions with a stick.
A blade of grass becomes the flag and it
is placed on a tower where the princess
is held captive by the King of Quartz.
Chains keep her from the windows.
Then the tide rolls in, gently, and then
faster, eroding the boy's masterpiece.
But the architect can return to the beach
to live another day in his imagination.
