Once In A While, by Danny Kemp

As if by magic it did rise

From a sea so tranquillised.

A crashing wave in a mighty swell,

An agonising look it did compel.


 

Those that stayed stood in fright,

Gazing upon its crashing might.

To all that watched on that day,

Its memory will never fade away.


 

Seldom does this ever appear,

And never from it flee in fear.

Simply stand to tell of your delight,

If ever you see such a sight.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
