The child on the beach

Tonight it seemed our lot to rest
Our eyes on a child on the beach.
It is other’s lot to rest  their eyes
On other nights spread on beach.
It is random procedure for eyes.

Refugees are checked for visas.
They are also checked for virus.
Let us open little clenched fists,
A procedure needed for all ages.
We decide when  heart stopped.

We do not find any pearls of eyes
Near a spread out child on beach.
We are waiting for a sea change.
Sea is calm ,ruled by  new moon.
The sea is advised caution tonight.
