The Boat

it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
What shall I write of my slapdash life
With its planks all chipped and weathered?
She set out to sail midst angst and strife
Now in this harbor tethered;
But tides do rise and currents change
And we must move her on,
And one day 'twill not be strange
That beneath the waves she's gone.

  1. Then let the winds and stormy seas
    Confound the calloused sailors!
    ‘Til out they come from under the lees
    Confront their woeful wailers.
