Away

It was a balmy, sunlit day when she and ship set forth,

Knowing nought but the stars and the bearings of the compass’s course.

 

Away, away, to shimmer on the silken sea.

Away, away, from man and society she did flee.

 

Off she took to the valiant, vast oceans,

To encounter flying fish and dolphins.

 

Alone and determined aboard her trusty vessel,

Happy and smiling as the south winds savor the sail.

 

Adventure and discovery far from earthly ties,

Just like Thoreau, below the unending skies.
