A Navy Man

image

A stranger he will be
The sailor home from sea,
To child left in the womb
An infant now he’s home.

He hugs his tearful wife
And cradles his new life,
Itches with the navy wool,
Feels it still, old briny’s pull.

Child cries at the stranger,
Man controls his anger,
Woman weeps with laughter,
Joy now, sadness after.
