Excalibur - Excalibur - 11
Musings on an Atlantic crossing, 11
Just the two of you sailing?
So romantic! they cried
All alone on the seas,
Just the stars for your guide.
Holding hands as sunsets blaze,
Moonlit suppers and dolphin displays!
Just the two of us sailing, so romantic, i agreed
Not a day passed without heart-melting deed
The strong hand on my strap as i puked off the side
The extra hour’s sleep when it’d been a rough ride
The smiling ah well when i gybed the boat
The cheery response to yet more beans on toast
The kiss on my head last washed who knows when
I fell in love all over again
