Cal 20

He came

In a brisk blow

In a Cal 20,

Spent the rest

Of the day

And the next

Loading store bought


Then slipped off

Into the fog

While others with

Sophisticated boats,

Radar and such,

Debated whether or not

They should leave

The harbour.

  1. I live on a boat, and loved this one as well. There once was a girl who came out of the fog, her boat was ruddy, as was her dog, the tide swept her out, as quickly as she came, and then everything was back to the same. 🙂
