Always Wanting More


Alice C. Bateman

The sands of time

Are washed ashore

The waters always wanting more

One last caress

Upon the beach

The ocean's cresting waters reach

Or one more hurl

Upon the rocks

Feeling all the thrilling shocks

The waves take turns

To reach the land

They long for the caressing sand

But most find rocks

Or barren ground

Before they have to turn around

And go back to

The end of line

When it will be once more their time

To cast themselves

Upon the shore

Always, always wanting more...
