A Snapshot of Worthing

Seagulls, overfed, swoop low
No fishing on repainted pier
Windswept dogs with owners go
On granulated beach: skies clear.

Worthing – shades of faded splendour
Steyne gardens: deck chairs in the breeze
Old postcards show snow in December!
Cluttered streets, roadworks, high teas.

Fish and chips, great Noodles Bar
Italian bistros – many choices
France on a clear night isn't far
This is England of accented voices.

The sunset adds a vibrant glow
To flowerbeds – each one unique
On the Prom “Fresh Bait” signs are on show
No wonder seagulls are so sleek!
