Let Me Sail Away Forever - Poem by Clive Blake

Let me sail away forever,
Let me cast off from the shore,
Let the swirling mists engulf me,
Till reality rules no more,
Let me sail the mighty oceans,
Let me pass by cliffs anew,
Let me navigate a passage
Through the rolling veil of blue,
Let my anchor never hold me,
Let my sails always billow out,
Let me sail away forever, and
May I never turn about.

    An excellent poem, perfect rhythm throughout. Imagery is excellent, you have described it all uniquely, so much so that I can see everything as you describe it in my mind. Loved this poem. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report)Reply
