Cruise Thoughts

I love to taste the salt breeze
Of the waves from off the sea,
And it is the gentle rocking
Of the ship that sets me free.

I love to see the ebon skies
And the million stars on high,
And I love the golden sunsets
And to see the seagulls fly.

I love to walk the teakwood decks
And look out upon the deep,
Where the sea goes on forever
And the flying fishes leap.

I love to dine in elegance
With a caring staff so fine,
And the service they provide us
Is like tasting vintage wine.

I love the entertainment
And the lounge chairs in the sun,
And the games the play upon the deck
Just enhance the long day's fun.

I love to visit foreign lands
With ports both old and new
Where scenes both quaint and beautiful
Await my questing view.

If I could choose one pleasure
In this world so large and wide,
I'd choose to cruise forever,
My companion by my side.

Paul B

Thank you, Paul. Once again you have brightened my day. I've said it to you before, and I'll say it again! You should copyright your poems. The cruise lines read these forums on occasion. I wouldn't be surprised to see some of your material in a commercial one day if you don't.

Thanks again,

Very lovely, as usual, Paul -- although I do believe this is my favorite so far. Do you mind if I print out a copy for my own personal use to take with me on my cruise next week? This would be lovely to read while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Thank you for sharing your work with us.
Happy cruising!
