UNWIND

against the twilight so quietly
sat this grande old lady of the sea
her lines and curves still full of grace
she bobbed so quietly in her place

many repairs were guessed at hand
once gotten out upon dry land

the trip from ramp to yard was slow
she creaked and moaned and groaned..tis so
and once in the yard looked unloved..and forlorn
her decks,roof and covers..all rotting and torn

and the heart of this dame once running at will
her engines sat rusty..and silent..and still

but with screws and nails and paint and such
was restored to it`s glory..with a loving touch
with sweat on brow and laboured hands
this sad old lady would yet again be grande

so as it was then,can it once again be
this grande old dame back out at sea

UNWIND
