Chesapeake, your shores I see.
Chesapeake, your waters I feel.
Chesapeake, your waves I surf.
Chesapeake, your fish I catch.
Chesapeake, your crabs I eat.

From Maryland to the Atlantic, you flow.
Norfolk, to Annapolis, to Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
In you flow the Potomac, the James, the Rappahannock.
Over you sails the ships from China, Germany, Japan, you name it.
Sails the United States Navy to protect your coasts.

Chesapeake, your bridges I cross.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel- largest of it’s kind,
crossing your waters.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge, high up, over you.
The Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, crossing between Hampton and Norfolk.
The Monitor Merrimack Memorial Bridge Tunnel, named after
the famous Civil war sea battle, on your waters.

Chesapeake, I live on your shores.
I am the sand on your beaches.
I am the fish in your waters.
I am the Ocean View fishing pier in Norfolk.
I am the cables on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
I am the two tunnels on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
I am the Navy ship sailing into Norfolk.
I am a container on a ship from China.
I am a child building a sand castle.
I am the shark looking for food.
I am the crab catcher.

You are the bay.
You are the biggest Estuary.
You are the Chesapeake Bay.
