Waverley steamboat

Today a paddle steamer came my way
And docked by the pier just today

It’s tall red funnels bright and cheerful

Stood out to greet us 

Though at first it seemed quite fearful

Why too many people

It seemed they had crammed on board

But once adrift ‘‘twas ok, thank Lord!

It was a lovely sunny day

So with happy smiles my friends did gather so on the boat we made our way 

We sat in the bar with joy and laughter 

Drank wine ate crisps 

Discussed this and that too

While outside the sea passed so very blue

Past Dagenham and Tilbury Dock

We sailed by

The water was perfectly calm

So not that high 

We laughed and chatted it was such fun

Our friendships cemented since once begun 

Canary Wharf soon came in view 

And the cable car so high, well phew! 

Before long Tower Bridge was looming fast 

The steamer gave a mighty blast!

With its bright lights blazing

It was amazing 

And through the bridge we sailed on through

It was a wonderful feeling to be true 

And by the side the steamer did dock

So gave us time to take stock

Of this wonderoud river

The River Thames 

Where I spent the day with my great friends 

The old paddle steamer then paddled away

To carry passengers on another day 

A lovely time was had by all 

On this first day of Autumn equinox the Fall 

A Waverley paddlesteamer made our day 

As is sailed the Southend pier way

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
