How I Feel About the Sea [a poem]

I wrote this poem this morning and thought I would share it.

I like to sail upon the sea.
The wind and waves are part of me.
I feel at home on all the ships.
The taste of salt upon my lips.
A gentle breeze or windy night,
the raging sea that brings a fright.
A well set sail and anchors home.
The promise of no more to roam.

But I still sail upon the sea.
The wind and waves are part of me.

I like it best when stars are bright,
and moon trails shimmer in the night.
and Whales will blow and Dolphins play,
and I will greet the brand new day,
with heart of hope to do my best
to bring my boat home to it's rest.

But I still sail upon the sea
the wind and waves are part of me.

And when my boat can roam no more
and I am forced upon the shore
I will hang my hat and remember well
the days I spent in sea and swell.
The oceans grace is mine to reap
and I may die before I sleep,

But I still sail upon the sea.
The wind and waves are part of me.

I think I should stop drinking Bourbon.

regards
SHINER

I am far from the ocean at the moment, and that SO makes me want to be on the boat at home. Thank you

pirate Re: How I feel about the sea. [a poem]

How do I feel about the sea...
Its always there when I need a pee...
one hand for me.. one for the boat...
That way I don't test.. my ability to float..

How do I feel about the sea..
It satisfies my need to be free..
when those on land become a bore..
the Ocean calls to me once more..

How do I feel about the sea..
Its wet, its cold when it dumps on me..
But then it calms.. the sun breaks through..
there's nothing else I'd rather do..

Well thats what red wine churns out...
Maybe I should switch to Bourbon..
