Sandy Cove in Elliston Bright
In Summer is a lovely sight
When western winds blow from the land
People play there on the sand
Men and women, and children too
Spend many hours out in the blue
They love with feelings of delight
To battle within its waters bright.
The waves that roll in from the sea
Fall on the sand so gently
That little children love to play
Within its waters all the day
And parents watch their antics there
While lying on the sand so fair
They love to lie there in the sun
After their swimming hours are done.
Built by nature and not by man
A wall of stone keeps back the sand
The sand so gentle to the feet
To walk on it is quite a treat
The sea there isn't very deep
The sand don't hurt the tenderest feet
A swimmer's joy in summer time
The very best place one could find.
The brook that wanders to the sea
Pass through beautiful scenery
With flowering shrubs of every heu
And trees so tall obstruct the view
People come from near and far
Pedestrians and by motor car
To stay awhile and enjoy the fun
With others playing in the sun.
There's many a trail between the trees
Where lovers wander and the breeze
Which blows so soft, perfume the air
With scent of balsam everywhere
People once tried to take the stone
Which nature placed there on her own
This would have been a big disgrace
To ruin such a lovely place.
There are lots of trout that one can hook
Within the waters of the brook
And berries grow profusely there
The dewberry, and the squash so rare
The raspberry and blueberry too
Are sweetened by the morning dew
Nature put forth a lavish hand
To build a background for the sand.
When Summer with her breezes mild
Blow o'er the land, both man and child
Love to return to this dear spot
Which none have in the years forgot
What say this place we now rename
For it’s become a place of fame?
I hope with me you'll all agree
To christen it Happy Valley.
