Tour boat, ferry, sailboat, skiff
Bounce along the briny;
Sunshine sparkles on the waves,
Reflections bright and shiny.
Blimp and copter in the sky
Meeting no resistance;
Bridge, majestic, guarding all –
A pillar in the distance.
Police boat passes, pulsing blue
And beeps at people waving;
Children, on a trip from school,
Downtown on the promenade,
The river slowly flowing;
I soak up my surroundings,
Glad for time before my going.
