Haiku (Sailing)
one day a steamship will carry across the pond these old bones and heart and in the old world a little pony I'll get to show me around and when I'm bored of a country and its folk quick I'll take my leave and not bother much with good-byes and au revoirs - a tip of the hat and I'll be off then to strange lands and odd customs and new adventures until I tire of dust, and hooves, and... and hospitality and then a wee sloop I'm gonna get, for sailing 'round my little globe [19 IX 09]
