Being on a Ferry

I wrote this with my daughter Elizabeth as we ‘ferried’ from Weymouth to Jersey.

Being on a ferry

Better than a cherry

Great big boat

Staying afloat

It’s windy up here

Fills us with fear.

Hair blown about

Water spout.

Being on a ferry

Kind’a merry

Great big boat

On England’s moat.

Ships in the sea

We can sea

Sailing free

Like our ferry.

Ode to the Castle Elizabeth Ferry

Charming Betty

The Charming Betty

A journey most curious

On ferry amphibious

Half boat, half 4-wheeled bus

Carried the five of us.

All hassle oblivious

To Castle Elizabeth.
