The following poem was the winning entry in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama’s contest in celebration of National Poetry Month in April.
by Denise McKinney of Selma, Alabama
Gulf Shores is my favorite place
Such a friendly, pretty, open space
Beautiful beaches, waves and sunsets
Having to leave will be your only regrets
Looking forward to my return
Swimming, tanning and even the sun burn
Gulf Shores is my favorite town
Fun during the day and when the lights go down
So come for a visit
You don’t want to miss it
White sandy beaches
Warm rays of sun
Gulf Shores has all of the family fun!
