Oyster Catcher

Comical little bird,
Drawn from a colouring book;
His bright orange beak
Sewing holes in the seamless sand.

Drawn, from a colouring book,
With a child-like hand,
Sewing holes in the seamless sand,
Searching for oysters at low tide.

With a child-like hand,
I rub my red-rimmed eyes;
Searching for oysters at low tide,
While my legs turn a delicate pink.
