After 18 x24 oil

This poem was written to accompany the painting.


After the beach with salt and sand removed
After the drive-in, flea market and gallery stroll
Boats are moored, paddles packed, sails refurled
Last oyster shucked, last lobster cracked
After the days last game has been played
The moon rises bright “en garde”
Evening envelopes Cape Cod.
