Seashell Crumbs

Seashell crumbs

Showed us the way

Down the beach

A late summer day

To a scavenger hunt

Through tangled seaweed

Where a seagull swooped in

And started to feed

On a soggy French fry

That floated by

The tide quickly switched

From low to high

We found treasure

Under the setting sun

Our pockets grew heavy

With seashell crumbs

As the rising water

Raced the end of day

The seashell crumbs

Were quickly swept away

Gobbled up by the tide

One-by-one

This scavenger hunt

The tide had won
