The sea and a secret

by Jem Croucher


Tall master in the Albert dock
at rest on Merseyside
I wonder where her keel has been
in oceans far and wide
Her rigging whistling in the wind
sails tied down and furled
She’s keeping that a secret
from an unenlightened world
But I’m content to wonder
and imagine summer breeze
when with full sail she proudly meets
the waiting open seas

  1. Great poetic work! Your words evoke an exhilarating sense of adventure, and your nautical vessel harbors mysterious secrets of its own.

  2. A wonderful poem and comment.

  3. Three of them took my poverty stricken Cornish ancestors from here to New Zealand. Those were three month adventures to a new start that eventually came right.

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
