The Forgotten Bucket

It’s a warm sunny day down at the beach, in 1935
people swimming, children playing
filling buckets with sand,
making castles with my imagination.

The day goes by as the sun gets cooler
people packing
people leaving
but down at the beach lays the forgotten bucket,
full of colours
full of memories.
