The railway beside the sea

In Devon, the railway runs right by the beaches 

Past small sandy inlets and bright golden reaches

Then follows the river whose tides are so steep 

Over salt-smelling marshes and waters so deep

In summer the sea is as blue as the sky

And reflects the white seagulls as they hover by

But in winter the waves crashing over the line

Carry the feeling of wildwind and brine

And over the railway the white salty spume 

Collects in a way that defies any broom

In Devon the railway runs right by the sea

Which is almost as nice as you think it might be
