Rookie (In Her Charming Eyes)



I have a Lady,

She belongs tome,

I belong to her,

Small she, yetfast,

Sloop rigged, raked,

Teak tiller andrudder,

Shallow hulled, slim,

Yet 3000 poundsof lead,

Running deepkeeps trim,

Fiberglass, aluminum mostly,

Wood, steel hereand there,

White and blueshe,

Live aboard onecan,

Very cramped shebe,

Best for cruisesshort,

Though her legscarry far,

Not a warriorship,

A gracefulelegant gal she,

In harm’s waynever sail,

Unless of courseI at helm,

Then of courseall bets off,

For Master andCommander,

I am as I am, crazy I am,

She be the AlbusRosa,

The White Rose, my ship,

See her ensignsnap in the wind….

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
