Labour of Love- Caribbean Style

                               (((  Sailor                           
                                                   
                           Sail ~ your ~ boat

                      Sun's rising ~ on the sea
 
                           Set ~ your ~ sails 

                      Winds blowing eas~ter~ly

                        Cast your nets to fish

                       Pack your catch and go

                    Your woman’s waiting home

                         To feed the fa~mi~ly )))

Bonsoir Susan...By now you know I like to mix it up... This is Caribbean folk... then again my version of it... This may be a little difficult for some poets to relate to...because it has that lullaby style... All the best to you my dear friend...I appreciate you a lot

Fried or grilled fish for the evening meal..Enjoyed reading this one..This is one that my mother taught me when I was young..Fishy, fishy in the brook..Daddy caught him with a hook..Momma cooked him in the pan..And I ate him like a man..Sara
