The boy, the ship and me

by Jem Croucher

Part 7 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

Arising early with the sun
the boy looked out to sea
and saw a liner sailing by
where on the prow stood me

He watched as pilots met it
and guided it to port
whilst I on board did likewise
taking pictures as I ought

Then as the sun got higher
and the day took on its heat
he waved goodbye and left
when the docking was complete
