  2. A lovely poem, even if it is rather lonely. The blue sky and mast is a great back drop.

  5. Great poem. My Dad was in the Navy, not by choice, he got drafted during WWII. Have a great week-end, it's just around the corner.

  6. Beautiful poem, Denise... My Daddy was in the Navy many many moons ago... He died in 1969--and I still miss him so much.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
