Boat on land in Pittenweem, East Neuk of Fife

Terra Firma

I was made for for the ocean
but they sought to tie me
to land

I roved free & brave
Strong men placed their feet
and hope
on me

I conquered storm and swell
I brought them home to where
they belong
the land

Many moons I sailed wild
and free

But finally, when broken
and useless

They tied me to
Terra Firma

And while I slowly rot
I remember
and long for the ocean
