Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Ships Sail Away
 
Standing beside the harbour wall,

Heaving waves spit icy fingers of brine

Into the walkway where we cower

Pretending not to notice the preparations of

Ships about to sail away



Sun rising in skies of red and gold

Arrays the scene with contrasting hues, chasing

Ink black clouds tinged with blue to

Lighten the day and soothe the foaming sea



As canvas rises to be filled with kindly

Winds and engines roar to life to ease the way

Another ship leaves the harbourís safe haven, Coursing

Yonder to conquer unknown lands far away.
