    M.V. Forum

    So where do they sail now, those seamen of yesterday?
    With spring in their step and the soft rolling gait
    Of wrought bodies loosened, to merge with the changes
    That humour the oceans, and the tides of each fate.

    Where once they were saplings alive from the forest,
    Responding to breezes, deep shadows and pain,
    The burnish of seasons brought iron to their wisdom
    And flint to the eyes as it silvered the mane.

    Now they’re sitting at rest as they talk o’er the ether,
    With a cup of warm soothing and a wife close at hand
    Who’s heard all the shanties and foc’sle head whispers
    That linger with seamen held fast by the land.

    So they sign on Brian’s Forum where memories loiter
    Where a sound or a word casts them free of the shore
    With movement and breezes that stretch out the duster,
    Back to the yesteryear’s voyage, to re-live once more.

    As their voyage continues, the sea never stumbles
    Or loosens its grip on the heart and the tongue
    For theirs is the passion that forms this endeavour
    Of sifting through Springtime when we were so young.

    So we gather alone, sailing yesteryear’s memories
    In jury rigged vessels with keyboards and screen
    Using semaphore fonts we can hoist the red duster
    To voyage again o’er the oceans we’ve seen.

    Happy daze John in Oz.
