Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

boats at anchor, Woodbridge
I am fevered with the sunset,
I am fretful with the bay,
For the wander-thirst is on me
And my soul is in Cathay.
ebb tide under summer skies at Woodbridge
There’s a schooner in the offing,
With her topsails shot with fire,
And my heart has gone aboard her
For the Islands of Desire.
anchored boats in calm waters
I must forth again to-morrow!
With the sunset I must be
Hull down on the trail of rapture
In the wonder of the sea.

Richard Hovey verses from The Sea Gypsy for the weekly photo challenge: Sea

  1. I too like the verse – you said you had no words of your own – may I ask you wrote the poem? And that sky in the second one – glorious. All good for the challenge.
