Thursday on Roseway is Poetry-of-the-Sea day for our island 7th graders participating in the Junior High Maritime Program and the poetry that comes from these kids is pretty amazing!
Nellisa Benjamin (affectionately known as "Bobops") had this to say as she sat on deck gazing off into the blue Caribbean sea:
The Roseway is afloat
And the wind is bashing on the sail
This is a 85 year old boat
I wish to see a whale
Chris and Peter helped me
To climb the big tall mast
I really would rather be sailing
Than to be in English class
The crew are humble and friendly
And my friends love them too
O my, I love the Roseway
And now I'm part of the crew.
Look out world--Bobops is poised to go places and we're mighty proud of her!
