Sailboat on a purple sea Yellow skies are all she sees Lonely Captain at the helm Lord o’er all her ocean realm.
Sailboat on a purple sea Sailing through Eternity The yellow skies reveal her ardor Searching for inlet or harbor. Where she can safely drop her anchor Without hostility or rancor Stay forever, or a day If on a whim she sails away. To search again for other shores Unmindful of the ocean’s mores. Sometimes storms impede her course Fill her journey with remorse Thunder sounds a deaf’ning roar Through driving rain, can’t see the shore Lightning bolts around her flash As if to call the Captain brash For thinking that she has control Over purple ocean’s vitriol.
If ever she regrets her plight When yellow skies turn dark at night And midnight storms have lead to loss She rights the ship and bears the cross And waits for morning dawn to break Sun through last night’s rain will make A rainbow reaching far away Certainly it will show the way To steer her sailboat that day.
Sailboat on a purple sea Yellow skies are all she sees Buoyant Captain at the helm Lord o’er all her ocean realm. PwL 04/21/15
