TO THE HARBOURMASTER (thanks Frank) I am still here, anchored in the bay. I wanted to be sure you could reach me. I should have left long ago But I cannot. In storms and sunsets,  with the dirty washings of the tide, I am unable to understand the vanity which holds me, And the rudder in my hand, looking for ways to leave.I have seen balmy days, shadowy mists,And sunlit sparkling waters.To you I offer my hull; And the tattered rigging of my will;The terrible channels where the windDrives me hard…See More
