Ocean Breeze

Anna Maria Island

Ocean breeze, please come again and keep me cool.
Evening showers, don't delay, bring the rain and soon!

Dive for sand dollars in holes off the beach.
Dry them in the sun, and soak in bleach.

Sea oats blowing in the wind, sand pipers on the run.
Butterflies among the reeds, chasing and having fun.

At night when its quiet, an owl may screech.
If you listen to him, he may even preach.

Ocean breeze from the west, seems to be the best.
Land breeze from the east, bring us all the pests.

We will leave the Gulf with waves, wind, and rain.
And pray that oil will not leave a stain.

Pack and clean, its almost time to go back home.
Beach was great, friends were fun, beach house was awesome.

Beach house on the Gulf, or cabin on the river.
The Gulf shines like gold, the river like silver.
