The Scarlet Sky

     Red sky at night, a sailor‘s delight. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning. Here’s my take on that.

     Have a wonderful weekend my friends,


In the Scarlet Sky your future lies

In the Scarlet Sky your future lies


 When crimson splashes on the sky

signify the day’s goodbye,

then you sailors there at sea,

will awaken, trouble-free.


 But, if the scarlet be at dawn

then you there sailors, be forewarned.

For weather foul is on the way,

and arriving fore, the end of day.
