Sailing The Swings

© more by Elizabeth Steinglass

Published by Family Friend Poems December 2021 with permission of the Author.

Arrgh! I’m a pirate.
I sail salty seas,

searching for ships,
at the whim of the breeze.

I ride rolling waves
up and down, night and day.

I head for the clouds.
I plunge through the spray.

Me, and my parrot,
every soul I command,

we rise and we fall
until we hit land.
