Betty Pembroke Heldreich was a poet. Surfing and the sea were frequent topics.

Surfing is skill
Using power of water
Riding on a board

Surfing in Peru
A winning experience
To bring the cup home

The thrill of surfing
Oh to ride that curl once more
Only in my dreams

Surfing is a sport
Riding big waves a challenge
Life and limb at risk

Surfer’s watch for swells
There are large walls of water
Breaking into waves

Home by the ocean
Where the waves keep rolling in
Beauty to the max

The large waves are due
Anticipation runs high
We will be ready

The next wave to ride
A decision must be made
How to challenge it

An old time surfer
Have dreams of riding big waves
A passing pleasure
