Venus & The Sailor
(painting/ Salvador Dali, 1925)
Aye, she were a sight
like a Goddess steppin' lightly upon the earth
me watery feet an' body still swayin' from the waves
she rocked me
rocked me sweet and gentle-like
rocked me wild and hard like the tempest she were
I clung for me life
me heart pitchin' and swirlin'
feet skitterin on the deck
then the wave came o'er the side
and I were done
and she were gone
and it were calm again
A 1000 days at sea
to no avail.....
I search for her still.
would that I had kept her that night
that foamy sea tossed ee'en
when she stepped upon me rails
