A family of grumbling bellies
Salty sand nibbling your feet,
Summer sun beating against your back
Sweat dripping in the afternoon heat.
An array of colourful shops
Each singing tunes eager to please,
Children look up with puppy eyes
As they catch a tantalising smell in the breeze.
A crowd of hands on cold glass
Tiny eyes salivating at the sight,
Balled mountains of ice cream a daunting array
Parents and children share a smile of delight.
