The Sailor


Charilette Rai Sweeney

Somewhat less than imposing, his now frail frame belies
the strength more than evident in his steely hard gray eyes

In his face lines have worn deep from so many years
of marking every expression and mapping every tear

Now he can only gaze at her from upon the sandy shore
his entire being filled with the sound of her awesome roar

She casts a bewitching spell with a love so rare
with whom no mortal woman could ever hope to compare

Eyes longing, soul yearning
spirit willing, heart burning

Yet sometimes it all seems all too much to bear
now bound to dry land by a hard, cold metal chair
