The Sea His Oyster!


(A memory of a recent cruise.)

The rich man in his flashy yacht
Proud of all the things he's got
Doesn't understand the pleasure
Of Malcolm, seen here at his leisure.
A balcony (we were upgraded....
An offer, and we were persuaded!)
A cup of tea, a melody
(He's wearing earphones as you see.)
The view of the never-ending ocean
With its gentle heaving motion.
A pleasant day to contemplate,
Plus a delightful, charming mate......
(Sorry! I get in on the act,
But I am quite perfect, that's a fact!)
Some do this daily and live it up
(Maybe with champagne in the cup)
But, for Malcolm, all this was rare.
He enjoyed it more than a millionaire!

Not so good for some here:

Wonderful view and poem ... reminds me of cruising in the Caribbean. We had coffee on the 'veranda' each morning too and wine in the evening ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

How lovely! That's our idea of a perfect day at sea. Such a nice capture in picture and words.
