I always think of you on boats


I always think of you on boats,
Remember you on river ferries
Among the cycles and the coats.

The breeze is singing minor notes:
A tune whose timbre never varies.
I always think of you on boats.

Above the deck, a seagull floats,
Its cries the windstorm steals and buries
Among the cycles and the coats.

A single drop of rain denotes
That summer comfort never tarries.
I always think of you on boats.

Inside the cabin, sun strikes motes
Of dust the autumn windstorm carries
Among the cycles and the coats.

At last to dock the ferry floats
To journey's end, as winter harries.
I always think of you on boats
Among the cycles and the coats.


(I don't usually do villanelles. Oh, well.)

Was the rhyme scheme that overwhelming?

Don't ask me
I wouldn't know a rhyme
From a rime
Says he.
