Love Sails on Sunday

Love Sails on Sunday

On Sunday we will go down with our cries,
down through the humid dawn into the bay,
and launch our little boat under the skies,
deep blue with cotton strands to meet the day.
The young one goes to curl up in the bow,
the rocking waves to lull his sleepy eyes,
a cool draught through the scuppers on his brow,
you kiss the salt from off his dreaming sighs.
The breeze will tease your hair and make you smile,
waves on the hull drum beat a rhythmic sound
and then we sheet the main, and all the while,
the dolphin and the turtle dance around.
And Sunday's love will sail on endlessly,
in setting sun, bound home eternally.

In fond memory of 
Allen Gail "Greybears" Brady

    The melancholy tribute rocks softly with the waves in this beautiful poem.....it is as if saying goodbye in the loveliest way, but with such reluctance. A wonderful poem, Mike!

    Mike, your poem is very heartfelt. I don't know what to say...The image of your warm feelings made me want to shed a tear... friends always bring out the best words, when missed. I can't believe how moving the thought was over the loss, through this short poem. your description, of them endless, Sunday's are beautiful. The ending is so heart breaking. Only you know! Only You know! I'm really speechless, had to force out these words, after they tidy emotinal read moved me. thank you for sharing your dedicated poem..always~ LINDA

    Only my sons call me 'Mr Bickerstaffe!' (just kidding...) What a refreshing change to see a sonnet so beautifully written, with perfect cadence and rhyming, and such a heartwarming sentiment. BRAVO, Mr Walsh! Best wishes, Keith
