The world is dark and scary
It really is quite bad
If men were birds they’d fly away
And leave behind the sad.

The ocean has a power
It teems with life and mystery
It’s beautiful and dangerous
And men fight hard just to see.

The heart and mind are casualties
In time of war and hated chance
We forget to even look
For a song that we might dance.

Upon the sea, a sailor dreams
And on her ship the sun sets fire
And all is beautiful out there
A golden peaceful pyre.

It burns with life and not with death
And the sailor dreams away
And when it sets the stars come out
And who then could miss the day?

The sailor sees so many things
And in her beauty rests the sea
She is voyaging through storms
But peace will come for her to be.

The waves may rise above the mast
And threaten with a rocky shore
And there are depths unknown to man
That have claimed the lives of yore.

But the sailor is on the sea
And that is where a sailor lives
And that is where she’s meant to be
And the sea, to her, a life will give.

Though the sky be veiled as night
And winds will rage and break the day
The sailor is meant to be at sea
And there She journeys on her way.

Raise your glasses high my friends
To the bravest soul we find
Though she may at times be scared
We know the sailor’s heart is kind.

Raise them higher still and sing
Of the one who dreams at sea
To the sailor we salute
May your dreams so come to be.

-Pour Le Sailor

  2. Love the very concept of writing an ode to a sailor! We would not be on the North American continent without them! Thank you for showing such fine poetic respect and understanding of the sailor’s life.
