Live Free


Life as a pirate is a lesson
Over the years I have grown wise
Watching the tide abate before
my very eyes

So I learn to live quietly
like the sound of light
I may pull a straw or two
Still I keep the faith

Not bothered by weather
Without a feather
I got better
Faced each day right

Not intimidated by fright
Nor the mask in the night
Brave hearted like a knight
Live life free like a kite

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
