Casting Off - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki
We cast off bow and stern lines
the ship edged out into the channel
alongside a stone breakwater-
Tinkling brass bells on buoys marked
our passage toward deep waters-
We stood by our stations
gazing toward the horizon-
Another day about to dawn
in the life of a seafarer!
