Treasure Island

the blue boat


The Blue Boat

When winter rain falls
The lake in the vale fills up
Clear as a child’s tear
Where a blue rowing boat floats
Whishing it were a schooner

When the wind blows
You can if you try see masts
And its boastful sails
As it crosses vast expanses
Of dreams and secret longings

    I'd have trouble with the dreams and secret longings part, which is such a

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
