At first, pit-pat of tiny hand on water,
Accompanied by gurgle and coo.
Perfect, gentle harmony.
Later on, with splash and splosh,
Rubber duckies, bubbles and squirt toys.
I hear the laughter even now.
Next, first visit to the sea,
Big eyes even bigger at the sight.
The whoosh of crashing into waves with squeals of delight.
Now, muddy rain puddles; the big treat.
Squelch and splat,
Mischievous eyes and cheeky grin.
