I combed, Hemsby beach…


I combed the beach for comets
Knowing only too well
They exist where I’m walking,
And at last I find my comet.

But ‘O’ look there’s another
And now another and another!

My pockets are by now heavy.
Of picking comets, I weary.
When, what is truly rare!
Becomes abundant; common place.
