Marina Life

Had I another life, I'd own a boat,
And in a Blue Marina I'd reside.
People on the dock, they'd call me "Cap'n"
Life's up and down would simply be the tide.

Navigation would be done by Sextant.
I'd try to learn the port from starboard side.
I'd know a reef, a shoal, and a fathom,
and every knot a sailor's ever tied.

A deck of teak and brightwork shiny brass,
a boat to make a sailor swell with pride.
When I left the dock to do my sailin'
the mermaids all would ask me for a ride.

Had I another life, I'd own a boat,
and in a Blue Marina I'd reside.
People on the dock, they'd call me "Cap,n"
Life's up and down would would simply be the tide.

    Great picture of you rolling with the tide and your rhyme is right on. Thanks for the comments on my "Fall" poem. Love, Joyce
