SHIPS THAT SAIL

Updated on August 30, 2011

Giant and small~

Ships of sail~

Billow to take the gale with ease~

As the bow creaks stress is easily released.

Many a ship sail~

Some gust in a storm~

And watch the stern~

While anxiety is felt~

Only a light breeze a-smelt.

Nervous ships sail un-at-ease~

One ship quite~

As it takes its hits~

The other aims its might at another’s rig~

Taking the wind out of the~

Others sail’s with a nasty gritting grip.

Ships sail with colorful plumes~

Others material is torn~

Neither could be gaily a-float~

Unless the right cargo they do tote.

Rare ships~

Of class and regal worth~

Whom escape the ugly others girth~

They are the lucky ones~

Rich enough holding still~

The manners behaved~

Keeping fast with good will.

Ships sail so different~

As the LORD did cast~

Their routed voyage tested in~

The future and in the past.

Ships sail first~

As other ships sail pitifully last~

While home again they switch~

Many do fray~

As they were crass~

As hope becomes a main stay~

That last.

Glorious ships sail~

Into the dock~

A safe harbor~

Wearing magnificent frock~

And splendid adornment~

Crowns the best~

The ones that passed the voyages routes test.
