Day Three

 

Shanty Prompt

Turn your eyes down

From the silvered spray

From the scudding clouds.

Turn your eyes down

Pull on the oars, feel your heart pound.

 

Turn your eyes down

From the bowl of stretched sky

From the wheel of the gulls.

Turn your eyes down

Pull on the rope, pull them all down.

 

Turn your eyes down

From the mountainous wave

From the depths without end.

Turn your eyes down

Pull round the sail, thrill to the sound.

 

Turn your eyes down

From the ache of the wild

From the cruel briny lady.

Turn your eyes down

And pull for the shore, for safety all found.
