The Royal Flotilla

Throbbing diesel engine, throaty so of voice,
Leaving now the harbour, leaving of her choice,
Chugging little motor, sister to them all
Feeling the excitement, answering the call,
Sophisticated cruiser cutting water well,
She is one of many, meeting on the swell,
Single seated kayak brave her captain be,
The joy of his conviction sending him to sea.
Ex-naval vessels answer a call within the heart,
Returned again to service, proud to take their part.
Renovated trawlers with week end workers keen
Jostle for position upon this royal scene…………..
