Mine – Lilian Moore (poem from Sunflakes: Poems for Children – Moore )

I made a sand castle. In rolled the sea.
        “All sand castles belong to me – to me,” said the sea.
I dug sand tunnels. In flowed the sea.
        “All sand tunnels belong to me – to me,” said the sea.
I saw my sand pail floating free.
I ran and snatched it from the sea.
        “My sand pail belongs to me – to ME!”
