The time spent searching for a waterfront haven.

Eighteen weeks ago it started
Unbeknownst to me
My hubby had decided
We should live beside the sea

But real estate is fickle
So much money it demands
For a private beachside haven
On a dune of glistening sand

We gave up the dream of ocean view
And settle for back bay
We came so close our unicorn
But it managed to slip away

Just by luck we found another
On a quiet tidal creek
That meanders through the wetlands
It had the view that we did seek

Eighteen weeks, not so long a time
We found our haven so divine
