Into the Light and other poems


Ships at anchor on Christmas Day

Two ships lie at anchor in the bay

One is red and the other is black

I cannot see the crew of either ship

But I know that they are watching me


Ships in Shallow Waters

Two ships rest in the shallow waters

Safe from the channel storms

Their crews are celebrating the birth of Christ

And thinking of their homes far away


Into the Light

On the horizon a ship is sailing

Into a plume of light

I know that I will not see its return
