Poet's Corner: Fair Wind


Fair Wind

By Steve Ewing

With hiked up trou

a big smiling grin

A smooth amblin gait

his brown weathered skin

Hailin’ from Cuttyhunk

the last of the chain

Grew up on seaweed

pure salt in his veins

Good with a boat

sure in a skiff

Handy as hell

won’t set you adrift

Fair wind as always

Alan would say

Just as you’re leavin’

ta bid ya good day
