A Sail To Paradise

      There is no reason for a long introduction to this poem. When you’ve read it, I think you will know what it is all about..

     Please enjoy the trip everyone,



 I would like,

to build a boat,

I’d pray to God,

that it would float.

Then sail away,

to isle remote,

where, warm breezes blow.


 Where the ocean turns,

to turquoise blue,

with houses colored,

in pastel hues.

And rain arrives,

as if on cue.

But, makes way, for the stars to glow.


 Where the sand,

is fine and white,

and music entwines,

both day and night.

And smiles real,

a most common sight.

That’s, where I’d like to go.


 But, alas,

I have no craft,

and barely know,

the fore, from aft.

To dream this dream,

I must be daft.

If only, wishing could make it so.


 Then I’d set sail,

on the morning tide,

and no delay,

I would abide.

The sun and stars,

to be my guide.

Then paradise, I would know.
