Imploring light of windswept sails

Comfort him when all else fails



Patient for the day to go

Easing out the burning foe



For only in the cool, dark night

Will he escape this fruitless plight



Roosting on the splintered dock

Heart beats with his mental clock



Eager as the sun burns out

Racing over bricks and grout



Loosen ropes and lift the anchor

Rising from the waves that flank her



Crow's nest watches mischievous gales

Lead him to their hidden trails



Take him where they want to wander

Over wind and waves they saunter



With the sea a playful fight

Rock him forward, through the night



Hoist the loyal, fraying kite

Pull him forward, through the night



Wind is stinging, nature's bite

Push him forward, through the night



Moon is following, glowing bright

Keep at bay the end of night


Lights aglow on ships out yonder

Burn imagination's fodder


Here is freedom, here is love

Flying with the light above


Gulls he follows to the moon

Shoot it with a red harpoon


The only sun is in his eyes

Free of greed, contempt and lies


Though the sun will come again

He will sail until the end
