THE SAILOR'S RETURN

                                            THE SAILOR'S RETURN     

                                 Stalwart he is on the galley’s deck
                                        One foot propped reposed--
                                        Wind dancing through his wild hair red
                                 Lingering are we on distant bare rocked shore 
                                      his long horizon gaze flickers 
                                       over us and past
                                Across the water echoes a foreign song
                                      Lilting and delightful
                                      Skipping atop the water

                                 Has he come back to you
                                 Or
                                 Behind the kegs of ale
                                 Is there a soft one waiting--
                                 Eager for the warming of his bed
