Cutting through the Waters


Cutting through the waters,
Buffeted by breeze,
Nothing beats the freedom
Of the open seas.
Longing eyes look forward
To some distant shore,
Lusting for adventures
As in days of yore.
Nearer still and nearer
Ship approaches land,
Soon we will be welcomed
By the sun-drenched sand.
Cutting through the waters
Seeking distant leas,
Nothing beats the freedom
Of the open seas.
