My Little Ship Goes

My little ship goes, it goes
from South Africa this fall
I want to go, really do

Little ship starts her voyage
Cape Town is beckoning us
Calls, my little ship and me
 
Ocean Princess sails
End of October, spring time
Flowers bloom way down under

Cape Town beckons me dearly
Show me to a game preserve
Ocean Princess calls

I am linked today with Kerry O'Connor at the Real Toads, The Tuesday Platform, continuing with Day 7 of Poems in April, and also Day 7 of NaPoWriMo 2015

Kerry's directions for today are anything goes.  She also reminded me of South Africa.  Ocean Princess is a small ship, holding 685 or so passengers, which will sail from Cape Town to Rome, Italy, taking 35 days. 
We sailed her sister ship, the Pacific Princess in the Summer 2013, from Venice, Italy to Istanbul, on into the Black Sea for three stops, and then back to Athens, Greece, stopping at Volos Greece on the way back. (Link) Our KP (youngest Grand-daughter) call it "her little Princess ship".

This is lovely, Jim. I would love for you to see Cape Town. Truly one of the most amazing cities in the world. My father has done that trip from Italy to Cape Town.

It sounds very pleasant and such a lovely picture of the whole place. The poem has the mood of excitement in looking forward to the trip. :)

I love when you write poems with this kind of beat. They read like songs. One of these days, it would be grand to hear you read the aloud, Jim.

Looks like a pretty big boat, to me! But I love the way calling it a little ship brings a sense of childlike wonder and adventure into the poem.
