A Brave Little Craft


I'm riding a boat in a wild torrent
A tiny little boat, a valiant craft
It's inundated with waves
From it's very fore to it's aft

Totally adrift, at the sea's mercy
No oars or rudder with which to steer
No way to keep steerage, no way at all
It's fate in the hands of God I fear

Little craft against the waves
I cry out like a little child
Stop it now. Stop it please
Little craft, adrift in the wild

Rocking, rocking, it's always rocking
To and fro, up and down, all around
I keep looking for landfall anywhere
Looking for it but it's not to be found

The little boat never does stop
No rest for it is to be found
It just keeps shaking, quaking
And rocking all around and round

Up one wave, o'er the bow it breaks
Down the next, down always down
First sliding then running
Down it goes, it can't be found

Faithful little boat never gives up
Riding the waves barely staying afloat
It keeps beating the elements
Keeps winning does this tiny boat

Hooray for this brave little craft
For without it I'd be dead in the sea
There is no one to provide rescue
So in the end I'm left with just me

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
