The Sand Castle
by louis gander  
3/24/2010 / Christian Living


The boy continued working
as people ran on by -
kicking up the sun-dried sand
which stung a little eye.

The beach was full of castles,
sand castles great and tall.
The artists had great patience as
the crowd was held in awe.

Some were very stately,
some were built quite lean -
but all the artists built them where
theirs could be well seen.

Castles grand and beautiful
some poised to win a place
Each small touch was serious
from top down to the base.

While all the crowd was standing 'round
still watching and amazed -
the judge looked ever critical
with eyebrow sometimes raised.

But then a storm came blowing by
collapsing every wall.
The crowd was stunned wave after wave
had toppled one and all.

Yet, spared there one sand castle
which stood above the rest.
It wasn't much to look at but
withstood the final test.

Removed from wicked, stormy seas
It stood back from the shore.
though storm had sent its wicked waves
it could have handled more.

Every great sand castle
was crushed and so outdone -
all tested hard with crashing waves
that could not reach this one.

It's walls were not the straightest -
but safely from the sea -
was built alone so humbly
and stood there faithfully.

That young boy sat beside it
not really that obsessed
when someone started yelling, "Hey!
This one beats the rest!"

The crowd all pushed and gathered 'round
and saw that castle standing.
They stood there so astonished but
did not say anything.

The judge pushed ever closer -
then saw that little boy,
who humbly built his castle
where waves could not destroy.

He roared loud his announcement,
"This one's the perfect size!"
and then he leaned right over and
awarded him First Prize.

Still, he continued working
though people ran on by -
kicking up the sun-dried sand
which stung a little eye.
