Cecily Fox Smith’s Alongshore

Cecily Fox Smith poem





A poem from the sailor’s friend and poet Cecily Fox Smith, found in an old book for boys published in the 1930s.

Oyster fishing at Whitstable, 1909

I’m sure I recognise some of those folks eating oysters at the end…

My thanks to Chris Brady for finding and pointing out this one.

By the way, I must apologise once again for being a little slow on this website at the moment. We lost our phone and internet service on the 20th July and are still waiting for it to be reinstated.
