Harbor Town Man

Carved from pine
Rugged, but divine
Timeless
Even-though from an earlier time

Resolute face
Weathered and without grace
Red and blushed
Sunburned or whiskey flushed?

Long coat open and flowing
Every work inspired wrinkle is showing
Brown and down to knees
For a harbor town man, if you please.

Hands in pocket of baggy pants
Taking a job well done stance
Red sweater takes away the chill
Insulation to keep from getting ill

Upon his head lies newsboy style cap of blue
While he peers at his town’s ocean view
He will not walk away
A harbor town man he’ll stay
