  • Long ago we crafted sailing ships
    in towns beside the sea
    and launched them out on voyages of discovery
    oh we watched them cross the waters
    and wondered when they might return

    there and thus we lived
    in worlds all our own
    in the tide pools among the rocks
    along the shores
    of a younger time
