Poem – A Sailor’s Blessing

Greetings! Another week has passed and somehow February is nearing its close. I’m not really sure where the time goes, but one thing is for sure – it’s definitely slipping by fast! It’s been a pretty busy season for me with school and work and just life in general. The sun has been shining far more frequently though, which definitely helps! And with the sun comes the smell of fresh cut grass and cherry trees blooming pinkly and picnics with friends. It’s rather glorious! Somehow life doesn’t seem that stressful when the sun is bright – even with three midterms and multiple papers and projects looming near. 😀 

Today I thought I would share with you a wee little poem I wrote about the sea – or rather a sailor of the sea. It’s just a little ditty, but the sea makes my heart happy, and so this poem makes me rather happy as well. I hope you enjoy!


My child, I wish you a kinder sea

Than the one that has carried me


May the tide that carries you far away

Always bring you home some day


Listen to the wind that sings

Let it bear you on its wings


I pray for you the bluest of skies

That reflect like dreams within your eyes


May the birds that screak and wheel above

Ever lead you on towards love


I wish for laughter and the tang of salt

To be your seasoning without fault


Darling, lift your eyes with hope and see

The world that is stretching out beyond the sea


Does the sea and the arrival of spring warm your heart? What else is bringing you joy these days? I’d love to chat in the comments!
