Cruising The Bay

Cruising the Bay By, M. T. Borders Sailing before the wind swept waves Running on a favorable wind Holding a steady course at the helm Not knowing where my day will end I search for the bigger water The Potomac before the Chesapeake Bay Point lookout is there in the middle And I will cross it about mid-day Tangier and Smith lay to the east And so does the Eastern Shore The wind whips Westerly And the forecast calls for 10 knots or more With Solomon’s to the North I turn hard as I round Lookout light I stiffen up my sails to the breeze And head towards the Pax for the night Over the many times I have cruised this course It has never been the same The Bay’s waters are always there But like a shark it will never be tame As sure as the wind shifts The tides will ebb and flow You never know which face The Bay decides to show And which ports I reach Before my rudder steers me home Really doesn’t matter as much As the good times I will be shown And where this cruise will end The next one shall begin For the Chesapeake Bay will call my name Until I sail her again
