A Gull Travels

A seagull - fancy free
Requested directions to the sea
To see what he'd never seen before
Perhaps travel to a sandy shore

His grandfather'd told him many tales
Of trawlers - dolphins and humpback whales
Leaving desire - a restless notion
To adventure - discover the ocean

Recalling stories of yachts and trawlers
Lobster pots and creepy crawlers
Of swooping for fresh fish for tea
Oh how he wishes he'd been he!

Pointing him in the right direction
The gull left the city (I'd no objection)
At midday winging out of site
Will he return for tea - HE MIGHT
