Cromer

entry picture

the sea is rattling bones today

and the wind holds my ears to ransom

for want of a scarf and a hat

 

she is walking on the promenade

and wants no part of the play

 

so I am talking to the man on the pier

with the rods and ask

“what’s your game?“

 

whiting

and if he’s lucky

bass

'The sea is rattling bones today'.

A great hook. Full rhymes. Assonance. And more going on behind the scene.

Nice one.

Bloomin' cold in Cromer at this time of the year especially without a hat. Really sad that the lady walks on. A cleverly captured moment.
