Poem by Jill Schumacher.


So solid and stately and proudly moving,
The noise of her engine , distant and soothing
The only sound that lingers and lasts
Is the creak of her tall and majestic masts
Her dipping and rising through the sea
Is something really special to me.

Standing there firmly – feet apart
Watching the seagulls dive and dart
Salt spray quietly caressing your face
Whispering past at a gentle pace
The wind playing through your hair
Instills a peace and life without care.

The joy of her freedom is so profound
And cant be experienced on the ground
This Kitty is dear, we value her so
Above her, about her, and down below
God stay with her and forever be
Her guardian from the storms at sea.
