The Gulls of Oceanside Pier

I enjoy expressing my thoughts through poetry, travel, well-being, and business tips.


That morning I rode on the coaster train

A smooth scenic ride with no sign of rain

This place that once seemed so far away

Now was quite near

Just up ahead,

I saw the Oceanside Pier !

Such a wondrous interesting sight

On it the sun shone delicate and bright

Imagine that day way back in 1888

The town first saw this structure so great

The beauty of mid-morning, the mild air

As I walked along I couldn’t help but stare

At the serene seagulls that were on the way

Perched on the wood on this glorious day

Some don’t think you birds are so special to see

But you gulls are really quite gorgeous to me

I watch you observing with a touch of glee

You seem so peaceful, quiet and free

I also look out to the surfers who wait

For the next wave on this ocean so great

The gulls of the wooden pier at Oceanside

Bask along it with still quiet pride

Gazing out to the majestic blue sea

In them and this view, such beauty I see.
