Scarlet Sails (poem)

My kids– 

So beautiful– 

Raise their scarlet sails up high.

O the Bright Dawn of the New World,

Shield them, when the night falls.

Live for the Love of it,

The Happy Amateur

Written for Poetic Bloomings.

"Scarlet Sails" by Alexander Grin was one of my most beloved books when I was growing up.  Still is.

They made a movie based on the book.  The above image is a poster for the original release.
