Sandcastle Poems for Kids by the Story Saturday Community

Childhood’s palaces –
Tributes to eternity,
Lost to tide and time

– Haiku by @BhhBurns

Moulding sand; yellow and brown,
So many castles, it’s like a small town,
A wave splashes over and they all fall down!

– Poem by @tyrannopaulus

Both islanders, we could’ve built sand castles together,
but I was a sea, destined to destroy,
and you, a steadfast palm tree.

– Poem by @CintzeSpeaks

Forgotten dreams
Ambition’s last stand
Fall to time and tide.
Like youth
& castles made of sand.

– Poem by @LightDarkWords

This kingdom
stands alone,
our backs
to the
shoals;
A salty moat
To fend off
the giants and
their swooping
gulls.

– Poem by @Poet_BDHildreth

– A Limerick by us, Imagine_forest

Along the shore
sand castles
glimmer
cinnamon gold
as the sun rises
on a new day
before the tides
wash all away.

– Poem by @cyclemaniac

Love to play
with my Kingdom by the bay
Such big dreams for baby, King, & Queen
OH NO!
To my dismay a wave washed it away.

– Poem by @ArielliCady 

The tears started when he came back with the shells to decorate the sand castle only to find the sandy mound that remained.

– Short Story by @innerchanging

On crystal beaches
Where childhood dreams conquer all
Sand Castles still fall.

– Haiku by @saf_begum
