Little Boats


I wonder what tales

These little boats could tell,

Of catches lost and fishes caught,

And waves that rose and fell.


They ply the waters near and far

Above the murky deep

The sounds of mermaids on the wind

That echo while they sleep


The dolphins play as whales swim by

The sailors watch at ease

Itโ€™s cod and herring that bring them out

To brave the chilly breeze


They know the dangers when at sea

The wind beneath their sails

Storms and creatures of the deep

So scary are the tales


But never fear, theyโ€™ll keep you safe

The little boats believe

You are in their hands to keep

They never will deceive


The years at sea have done their toll

Their lives have now been spent

They pass the torch on to another

Itโ€™s time to now repent


Remember well the little boats

Who plied the waters deep

Theirs was but a moment here

Now fathoms down they sleep
