    Well, as a finale to this evening's nautical entertainment
    and in the spirit of broadening the scope of this list as
      Herbert suggested above, here is a pome I wrote
      today:
    
    The Seafarer's Tale
    
    There is a cold wind blows tonight
      a hint of snow in the pale Moonlight
    A glittering frost upon the ground
    A brilliance on the shimmering sound.
    
    The moaning wind bangs on the gate
    The fire is roaring in the grate
    Beyond the cliff the boat rides anchored in the roads
    Bare poles and rigging tapping in the blow
    It's time to put on gear and go.
