A certain place

Listen! Do you hear it? The bellbuoy. We are home. Listen! Do you hear it? The surf with its foam. Stop a moment, smell it! Seaweed on the air, And now a burst of fragrance, Beach roses everywhere. Look! Do you see it? The lighthouse with its beam. Look! Across the water Its revolving gleam. Listen! Do you hear it? A seagull's piercing cry. Look! There you can see them, Sandpipers running by. Beach plum growing on the dunes, Seals out in the bay. Here is felicity, Day after day.
