Poetry and Creative writing
[QUOTE=captain kong;300467]Here is one I found in the magazine, Ships, author unknown.
"I shall acknowledge old age
when the call of the far wild seas
no longer stir my blood.
When I shall not see as a boy would see
the beauty of a homeward bound ship
harbouring on the flood.
Only then will I sit in the lee of the Harbour wall
conjuring up dreams from the River`s mist.
Only then will I weep an old man`s tears
for times that I have known,
and for lips that I have left unkissed,[/QUOTE]
