This is a sort of ode to summer and fun times at the beech. Most of the stock ideas of summer frolicking on a sandy shore are here,

"Down to the beach

Only there the ladies reveal saucy behinds

Whenever the raging sun is still kind..."

There is a certain dread of bad weather and with that, perhaps, bad times,

"As never-ceasing waves play across the shores

People happily play dreading any rainy downpour..."

The rest of the poem seems to span stereotypical happy experiences of beach goers across a range of ages.
