Default Something To Think About During This Hot Summer

Sea Companion

The sea gods call, and I must go.
I must cruise down where the trade winds blow.
I must sail south through the midnight blue.
Through calm or storm, I shall sail with you.

With you on the deck in the dawning light,
Or under the stars on a perfect night,
When the calm salt breezes caress your hair,
It delights me to know that you are there.

For you are the one that I would choose,
To be at my side through life's long cruise,
And we'll leave the choice to chance or fate
To decide who is captain and who is mate.

Though we may sail where the wild winds roar
And the tide take our ship toward the rocky shore,
With you at my side, we'll steer straight and true,
May my life be a cruise, may the cruise be with you.

Poetry is the truest form of art in my opinion

Paul, your poems never fail to bring to my mind, the image of standing at the rail of the ship, feeling the sea breeze, and smelling the salt air...pure magic!

Gosh Paul, I sincerely mean it when I say you should publish your poems. I never appreciated poetry until relatively recently and you are one of the reasons my interest stays peaked.

Henry, I have never published anything. I just write the poetry for fun.
Nowdays, most of what passes for poetry has no rime or meter. I just like to keep traditional poetry alive.
