Wind
By Robert J. Roe
 
From “A Sailor's Note-book”

I
WIND hunches his shoulders,
Un shivers behind deck-house.
He would like to be im tropics now.
 
II
Wind jumps at the luff of sails,
Slides down on his belly        5
With legs all spread-eagled,
Tumbles off boom,
Un goes round un round companionway—
Like crazy cat shasing his tail.
 
III
Wind is lazy stevedore
        10
Which comes along
Un dumps sacks of spices,
Un shuffles away singing,
“Yankee ship came down the river.”
