Peveril Point

Follow the coast path
Sailing club, yachts, private beach
Dogs pounce on the waves 

Rolling and dipping
Traverse fermenting seaweed
Rocks green and slippery 

Rough sisal plaited
Lobster pots stacked on jetty
Empty of their catch 

Capital relic import
Clock from London Bridge 

Lifeboat on alert
Orange and blue bow pokes out
Slipway clear, ready 

Danger. Rocks submerged
Beneath the surface, hidden
Snare the unaware 

At Peveril Point
Coastguards watch, all day vigil
No flares, SOS. 

Steep cliffs drop to sea
Loose rocks, wild vegetation
Mind, keep from the edge
