Poem

A SEASON ADORED

A SEASON ADORED

WE GET OUR BOATS READY

IN THE BEAUTIFUL MONTH OF MAY

EASY IN MIND

TO PLAN AND TO FIND

TREASURES TIMELESS AS WATER

TO JUST STOW AWAY

IN THOUSANDS OF BACK-BAYS

THROUGH STRONG WINDS

AND BRIGHT SUNNY DAYS

YOU SHORE UP OUR MEMORIES

LIKE FOOTPRINTS IN A TIME-TUNNEL

YOU SEEM TO JUST KNOW THE WAY

THE MOMS OF OUR NATION

THROUGH TIDES AND SHORT DRIFTS

NOT ENOUGH TIME IN THE DAY

THE MEMORIES YOU FORGE

REMAIN WITH US A LIFETIME

A SEA VEST SECURE IN THE WAVES

THE WATCH-CLOCK OF TIME

STANDS STILL BUT FOR SECONDS

AS WE RUN, AND WE CHATTER, AND PLAY

SO GRATEFUL TO WALK

IN YOUR SEASCAPE OF FOOTSTEPS

AS WE TRAVEL THOSE BEAUTIFUL DAYS.
