Wave – Alan Pattison

The first is little more than a trickle

I am a semi-retired researcher and author of local history

Wave

The first is little more than a trickle

The second you can barely notice

The third pretends to break

The fourth makes you think about it’s wake

With the fifth you are wide awake

By the sixth standing up and being brave

To turn round and face the seventh wave

Alan Pattison
