Secrets and mysteries of this island shore
Must be experienced, not explained, frosty
Morns, steaming breath, splendor of winter
Sunrise, pastel skies, setting sun, cacophony
Of calling seabirds, beach sleeping, wind-
Facing, sun awaiting, migration resting
Overnight. We are visitors, this desolate
Strand belongs to nature, requires protection
From storms, sand-dune erosion, crashing
Waves. Come walk Assateague Island strands,
Where sky, sea, and sand merge as one.
