lost at sea (Poem 20160426)

sound the bell, and tell my darlin’
your darlin’ is lost, your darlin’ is lost

weigh the anchor, and string her pearls
her pearls are lost, her pearls are lost

strike the sail, and blow me home
your home is lost, your home is lost

pipe me ashore, and let me kiss her
your kisses are lost, your kisses are lost

find a star, and steer me to it
your stars are lost, your stars are lost

take my heart, and feed the sea
your heart is lost, your heart is lost
