Sailor’s Delight - A Tribute to Harry

Sailor’s Delight            
A smile has his lips
limericks his laughter
prayer his utterance

military his posture
country his loyalty

fellowman his help
friends his kindness
family his generosity
Dee his devotion

sailing his passion
high tide his sea
full wind his sails
red sunset his sky.
