The Sail Boat Beneath Me

A poem about sailing my 35' sailboat out into the ocean for the first time. A wonderful ffeeling!

The Sailboat Beneath Me.

I'm on the ocean, the water's blue,
My sailboat is beneath me - this is true.
The sails are up, I'm on a reach,
I can see people on the beach.

I have a tiller, wood and strong,
The sails are singing a lovely song.
The wind is rushing by so fast,
I hope this feeling always lasts.

My sailboat is my pride and joy,
I have an engine to employ,
When the wind dies down, you see,
I need the engine to push for me.

I see the buoy and need to tack,
Another heading to get me back.
To my home port and pier of mine,
I always enjoy sailing all the time.
