Voyage During the Storm
Dark as the night, blue in day White with foam, not as far to see Endless as sky, deep as mountains high Roaring like the lion at noon time Calm as the dove; Sometimes silver like a dime The seas are full of love. Stars in the twilight sky Ships steering by the night, Splashing on the mighty hulls The sailing ships of the sea; Sailors shouting all the day long The four winds are set free Nightfall is near, what can go wrong The majestic ship sails along. Moonbeams in the night, Darkness envelopes the sky Sails thuder at a gust; Off the starboard bow, he said The mighty rainclouds appear The calm before the storm, he read The thunderstorm is here. The sails, damp with spray Tossed and turned by the breeze Her will cannot be broken; End is near for the shower The sun in the sky is bright Gloomy seas never cower, Port is near the light The sea of the day is like night.
