    I saw it again this evening
    Black sail in a pale yellow sky
    And just as before in a moment
    It was gone where the grey gulls fly

    If it happens again I shall worry
    That only a strange ship could fly
    And my sanity scans the horizon
    In the light of a darkening sky

    That night as I walked in my slumber
    I waded into the sea strand
    And I swam with the moon and her lover
    Until I lost sight of the land

    I swam ‘til the night became morning
    Black sail in a reddening sky
    Found myself on the deck of a rolling ship
    So far where no grey gulls fly

    All around me was silence
    As if mocking my frail human hopes
    And a question mark hung in the canvas
    For the wind that had died in the ropes

    I may have slept for an hour
    I may have slept for a day
    For I woke in a bed of white linen
    And the sky was the color of clay

    At first just a rattle of canvas
    And the gentlest breath on my face
    But a galloping line of white horses
    Said that soon were in for a race

    The gentle sigh turned to a howling
    And the grey sky, she angered to black
    And my anxious eyes searched the horizon
    With the gathering sea at my back

    Did I see the shade of a sailor
    On the bridge through the wheelhouse pane?
    Held fast to the wheel of the rocking ship
    As I squinted my eye in the rain

    For the ship had turned into the wind
    Against the storm to brace
    And underneath the sailor’s hat
    I saw my father’s face

    If a prayer today is spoken
    Please offer it for me
    When the bridge to heaven is broken
    And you’re lost on the wild, wild sea
    Lost on the wild, wild sea…
