The Heavenly Seas

Tides ebb on the boundless seas
Forever drifting to worlds unknown
Sailing around in the endless breeze
Heavens hold a new course now shown
Ageless wonders lay forward now
Adventure swallows the seaman’s crew
Engaging priceless treasures beyond the bow
Hopes and dreams arise in the ocean’s blue
“Land Ho you lovers” roared the crow
Excitement bellow as the mariners cry
“All hands on deck” the captain yelled below
“As God’s my witness, no man shall I deny.”
Soon they dropped anchor and off they go
Upon the shore a beautiful woman they did greet
She asked them why they had come upon her land
“To explore the land and fill our ship complete
With food and water and what treasures at hand”
“Food and water we have plenty to give
As for treasures it would depend upon your greed”
“To be rich is the goal upon all who live
Yet our hearts will not steal what others have need”
“Then follow me and I will show you our worth
You won’t need your weapons beyond this point
We’ll show you the wonders of our home of birth
The treasures we endear upon your head we’ll anoint”
They explored the great wonders all week by day
And were spoiled with pleasure upon each night
Until it came time to be on their way
The crew offered them gifts of their heart’s delight
As the crew started back the long journey ahead
They made their last night one to remember
The captain retired early to rest in his bed
And of his greatest week in this month of September
Upon the morning they gathered their supplies
And headed for the boats to return to their ship
As they approached the beach they had a great surprise
Their boats were laden with treasure to take on their trip
The woman had told them "Because your hearts were pure
And not laden with greed as so many before
These treasures are given to make your lives sure
And live your lives in peace upon your shore
As the crew made ready the captain turned and said
“This dagger has been in my family unto you I give
As a token of my appreciation as leaving I dread
But now I can return to my family with a new life to live
The sea has been my glory, but now it must end
And start a new life upon the shores of home
Nestled with my family with many years to spend
For you have satisfied my need to no longer roam”
They bidded each other farewell with tears in their eyes
For the time had come for them to depart
No greater sorrows was spent in their goodbyes
No greater joys unto each they impart
