Beach Castle

You said I could be king,
And you would be my queen.
Together we’d build a castle
Where only dunes had been.

 Looking down the beach,
The sea seemed far away,
So we commanded pail and shovel,
And made the sand obey.

 But creeping like a thief,
And ally to the moon,
The tide besieged our castle,
By orders from Neptune.

I’ve since built walls and towers,
Impervious to tide,
But never like that castle,
Over which we could preside.
