Where The Paper Boats Sail by pesare Where The Paper Boats Sail by pesare
Inspired by a song called "Laivat" ("Ships") by Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

A song that the wind once carried
from the other side of the lake
to my grandparents' summer cottage
when I was just a little boy
playing in the shallow water...

A song that tells about White Ships
that sail back from the lands
that have been forgotten...

The blending of the sky and sea has a wonderful, endless sort of tone to the picture.
It's a lonely sort of picture, but very calm. Almost hopeful.

Little Paper Boat

She sat in a little paper boat,
And paddled into the Atlantic.
She said she had to live her dream,
As she applied her night cream.
I told her she would get wet,
So she wrapped herself in a towel,
She said she didn’t mind a shower.

Since she’s gone,
In her little paper boat,
(That can barely float),
The waves swim away,
From this desolate shore.
I turn towards the west,
My mind won’t rest,
My eyes look yonder,
For that little boat of paper.

O little paper boat,
Trying to stay afloat,
Bobbing up and down,
Amidst the mid-atlantic waves.
When she looks in her bag,
For her blue plastic cap,
Turn around in quick motion.
In the middle of the ocean,
She won’t notice your rotation.
Then skim across the ocean waves,
And bring her back to me.

by Wriju


P.S. I'm sure I can see one of my many paper boats there amongst the others far, far away.
Thanks for the memories.

This reminds me of the first poem I ever memorized.
"Where Go The Boats?" by Robert Lewis Stevenson

Dark brown is the river.
Golden is the sand.
It flows along forever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating -
Where will all come home?

On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Will bring my boats ashore

Thank you! That's beautiful. :hug:

And, because I believe that when someone gives you a poem you have to give one back, here's a somewhat fitting words by Eeva-Liisa Manner:


Like Odysseus, the Inquisitive, I have felt this journey
to be dangerous, and have rejoiced in it.
I am empty now,
my empty boat is tired of the adventure.
