Sometimes when clouds cover the sky
there is no wind to blow.
Like a soft cloak the grey clouds lie
above the sea quite low.
You try to catch a glimpse of blue
but seldom you succeed.
And on the boat your sailing crew
from boredom starts to read.
But in a storm the clouds rush past
so that clear sky is seen,
movement on board becomes real fast
until all sails stand clean.
I would prefer a middle way
of a mild breeze, blue sky,
and not the hectic storm with spray
but sunshine bright and dry.
