Sailing into the night is fun
provided that the wind stays steady,
and yellow colours of the sun
accompanied you, so you’re ready.
Before you moonlight dips the sea
in silver, keeps the sky in blue
and lends your wake a mystery,
a clear white path following you.
The waves’ persistent silent lapping
at the side ‘s the only sound,
sometimes a larger one is tapping
against the bow happily found.
This quietude is like a balm
and soothes you and makes you calm.
