Sea Voyage

How the waves crash

The Mist
The Spray
The Thrash

How the mast heaves

The Creak
The Sail
The Breeze

How the oars rise

Go Up
Go Down
Go Wide

How the drum beats

The Baton
On Skin
Repeats

How the men cry

Of Homes
Of Friends
Of Wives

How the arms strain

The Skin
Pulled Taut
In Pain

How the days pass

The Dawn
The Dusk
So Fast

How the night draws

The Dark
The Creaks
The Snores

How the ship stops

The Maps
The Bearings
Are Lost
