We went down to the water,

I went with my son,

It was a day full of sunshine,

Of laughter, of fun.

We swam in the ocean,

We played by the shore,

We found beautiful shells

On the generous seafloor.

We stayed until sunset,

When the shadows grew long,

It was our farewell to summer,

Our final swan song.
