Poetry Thursday


Sea Joy
Jacqueline Bouvier (Kennedy Onassis)
1939

from The Best Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

When I go down by the sandy shore
I can think of nothing I want more
Than to live by the booming blue sea
As the seagulls flutter round about me

I can run about – when the tide is out
With the wind and the sand and the sea all about
And the seagulls are swirling and diving for fish
Oh-to live by the sea is my only wish.

    What a perfect poem.  And I was delighted and honored that you chose my picture to illustrate its meaning!
