If I were a boat, and you the seas,
I’d hoist my sail and let the breeze
Bear me ever homeward bound,
Within your harbour, safe and sound;
And if a storm should cause dismay
With roaring gale and stinging spray,
You’d take the wheel, your waves escort
My shaking hull to safer port.
Midst unknown anchorage, should I
Dismiss my destiny, my why,
You’d paint my name upon my deck
In sea-foam green, lest I forget
That I am one with deeper swells,
With azure waves, and sea-carved shells,
With pirate kings, and mermaid songs;
For in your arms, my sail belongs.
WOW-WONDERFUL, I love it!
Sail away with me? Wouldn’t that be fun… *wistful sigh*
Just let me take a Dramamine tab and I’ll be ready!
*splutter* Sail away!
And I do like that boat with your name (in sea-foam green) upon it!
🙂 I rather thought that was a nice touch… Thanks, Gallivanta!
This brought a big smile to my face. I too loved the lines of your name in sea-foam green.
Thanks, Russ! Those words bring big smile to MY face! 🙂
This is absolutely beautiful…a joy to read:)
Melody, I really Love this poem, beautiful! And I’d love to sail away too. 🙂
Aw, thanks, Madilyn! Where should we sail to? Somewhere WARM, I hope!! 😉
