My Boat Wants To Sail


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


My boat is all alone

On the weaving mystic sea

Like a bottom pebble stone

That cannot become free

Blue white billow's high

In their faraway circling around

Surround it there and tie

On deep abyss own playground


My boat wants to sail

Through oceans of unknown

In search of a fresh trail

Where easy wind has blown

But brine seas are deep

And get so much there lost

Commitments cannot keep

On rocky shores get tossed


Sea dreams won’t elapse

If we can find their way

Sail through hidden traps

Reefs that with ridge play

My boat wants to find

The freedom of the deep

And leave old scenes behind

That my turret can’t keep
