Sea Shanty
by Alice Elizabeth Thompson

With a flash of bronzed skin
You sailed into my port
And tossing golden mane
Dropped anchor in my heart.
With your clear and steady gaze
Glinting in the morning air
You spied my darkest secrets
And vanquished my despair
With your strong and gentle hands
You guide me to waters calm
I know Iíll find safe harbour
In the shelter of your arms
With the fresh taste of salt sea spray
Teasing your impish grin
You sound the depths of my soul
Seeking leave to enter in
The music of your laughter
Echoes softly on the wind
Then you sing of distant shores
As you sail away again
With this I dream of you
Each night I close my eyes
I wish you may forever have
Fair winds and clear blue skies
