Building sandcastles, building dreams

"Build sandcastles, while in tender years;
        grownups who did, live up in good cheers." avr

 Building Sandcastles on Morong Beach, Bataan
Build sandcastles, they bring back the past,
when you were young and never ceased to ask;

Build sandcastles, they make dreams come true,
on a flying magic carpet’s view;

Build sandcastles and copy the cloud,
faces of creatures behind the shroud;

Build sandcastles and meet the Martians,
the Aztecs, the cowboys and Indians.

Build sandcastles, poet Milton long aimed:
Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained;

Build sandcastles along the river,
playground of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer;

Build sandcastles, and meet Peter Pan,
Casper, Nemo, in the world of fun;

Build sandcastles and hunt for treasure
at the Pyramids, the Aegean shore;

Build sandcastles for pleasure and pain
in Great Expectations by Mark Twain;

Build sandcastles, indestructible to doom,
big enough for victims in their dome.

Build sandcastles for today's modern toy,
with skills to invent, not to destroy.

Build sandcastles as tall as the Eiffel,
'til the sun sets and the winds chill;

Build sandcastles, while in tender years;
grownups who did, live up in good cheers;

Build sandcastles and reach out to sea,
to the unknown and risk to be free;

Build sandcastles, fairy tale or true,
for life is but a passing review. ~
