The Moon Boat (for Beth).

The Moon Boat
Robert Anthony 2019.                                                                                                                                        “I assure you this lovely, vibrant moon boat, Is safe and secure, it’s guarded by love, Forget your religion, your colour, your race, Board as a mermaid and fly like a dove. Dancing on waves it will safely float, It’s a cradle; a swing, and a rose’s bud, It can fly as well; it’s a silky moon boat!”        The Moon Boat – Akhtar Jawad

Fair Stood The Wind For France

Fair Stood The Wind For France
Robert Anthony 2019                                                                                                                                    “Fair stood the wind for France, When we our sails advance, Nor now to prove our chance, Longer will tarry; But putting to the main, At Caux, the mouth of Seine, With all his martial train, Landed King Harry”.   Agincourt – Michael Drayton. 1563–1631
