As soon as I step upon the deck
Of any boat or ship afloat
I feel at home and ready to roam
The ocean wide come wind or tide,
Cast off the ropes, sky-high my hopes
And full of joy like some young boy.
So come with me, let’s put to sea,
Shrug off the years, forget our fears,
Together sail through storm and gale
Hand in hand and far from land

Yet safe and sound—not homeward bound

This is nice, Peter. I like the rhymes within each line...and the message. I'm ready to get on a ship and sail away. This poem is compelling, along with the pull of the sea. Raynette

I like your poem but you obviously don't suffer from sea sickness.
