Building sandcastles can be a work of co-operation. You just have to be prepared to do it again and again.

Sandcastles

Do you remember our week by the sea?
It was a treat for you and for me.
Brother and sister, we ran hand in hand
We'd have to work together for what we'd planned.
You with a bucket, me with a spade
There were splendid castles to be made.
We had to find the perfect spot
Where ideal sand there was a lot
And so we worked for many hours
Building and smoothing castle towers.
I'd dig the moat, you'd look for shells
We'd done great, we'd done well.
And then we'd wait for the tides approach
Until it lapped and filled the moat.
It wasn't long before it would crumble
The power of the sea making it tumble,
But we weren’t upset,  we didn't care
Tomorrow we'd build another one there.
And this we did for six whole days
Better and better they would amaze.
But last one built there came the sadness
No more togetherness against the madness,
We'd once more be sister and brother
Having very little to do with each other.
