We Lying By Seasand

We lying by seasand, watching yellow

For in this yellow grave of sand and sea
A calling for colour calls with the wind
That’s grave and gay as grave and sea

The heavenly music over the sand
Sounds with the grains as they hurry

Bound by a sovereign strip, we lie,
Watch yellow, wish for wind to blow away
The strata of the shore

extracts from ‘We Lying By Seasand’ by Dylan Thomas

These were done on my last visit to Wales in April and show that it doesn’t rain all the time! They were done on Pendine Beach – the location of Land Speed Records in the 1920’s. Pendine is only a few miles from Laugharne where Dylan Thomas lived and wrote much of his poetry.

Don’t forget the Wales Coast Path officially opens on Saturday 5th May with lots of events going on.
