Free Verse

time sneaks around
smooth and sound,
darkness creeps in
from all over the world
stars hangs high
expelling the coldness
day by day
when the sun shows up
the world is filled with
obligated hopefulness.

ABOARD, at a ship's helm,

Funny bunny Fridays Week 15 (January 2-12, 2015)

poster posters bunnies bunny animal animals 

ABOARD, at a ship's helm,
A young steersman, steering with care.

A bell through fog on a sea-coast dolefully ringing,
An ocean-bell--O a warning bell, rock'd by the waves.

O you give good notice indeed, you bell by the sea-reefs ringing,
Ringing, ringing, to warn the ship from its wreck-place.

For, as on the alert, O steersman, you mind the bell's admonition,
The bows turn,--the freighted ship, tacking, speeds away under her
gray sails,
The beautiful and noble ship, with all her precious wealth, speeds
away gaily and safe.

But O the ship, the immortal ship! O ship aboard the ship! 10
O ship of the body--ship of the soul--voyaging, voyaging, voyaging.
