Poem: “We sail together” (Poetry Form: “Sea Shanty”)


This form ( Sea Shanty ) is new to me and this took too much time for me to write.

Even I’m not good in this form, I wish, you’ll like this poem …

Shantyman (solo) : We, sailors sail together

All (refrain) : Sail together!

                       Sail together!

Shantyman (solo) : We, sailors sail together

All (refrain) : Sail together!

                       Sail together!

Shantyman (solo) : While seasons after season come

All (refrain) : Storms or tides, we welcome

Shantyman (solo) : We neither fear nor take leave

All (refrain) : Whether we all come to grief

Shantyman (solo) : Yeah! And we sail together

All (refrain) : Sail together!

                       Sail together!

Shantyman (solo) : Nor we worry about weather

All (refrain) : Blessed by our heavenly Father

Shantyman (solo) : We work,we sail

All (refrain) : Nor we quarrel,true pals

Shantyman (solo) : And we sail together

All (refrain) : Sail together!

                       Sail together!

    I have written lullabies, even a different kind of sea fairing poem, but not yet a shanty.
    I think you captured the spirit of the sailors well.

    I hope you continue to write everyday for National Poetry Month. Continued success!
