Place By The Sea
By Betsey Nixon
Along the coast of Southern Maine,
Is a place I want to be
The village of Kennebunkport
Oh to live in a place by the sea.
Neat little shops surround Dock Square
Pretty and quant as a town could ever be
Abundance of flowers, in bloom everywhere
This charming place by the sea.
Over in Cape Porpoise and down to the pier
Buoys and lobster boats, a lighthouse too
Walk down the lanes, absorb the warmth
This little settlement with a harbor view.
On to Goose Rocks, past the Clock Farm
To the loveliest beach for me
Tidal pools with snails and shells
Heaven has sent this place by the sea
