Homeward Bound

by Frank Maguire

Homeward bound at last is he
From a land so far and wide
He will board a ship, then sail the sea
And brave the raging tide

With such a love that burns so bright
For his bonnie maiden fair
He still retains, and holds so tight
Her lock of auburn hair

His mind remembers everyday
Of the time spent far apart
A song of love without delay
Is sung within his heart

A promise made so deep inside
For again to never roam
He will make his girl a blushing bride
And build for her a home

A tear of joy now falls with ease
So soft and silently
Her auburn hair among the breeze
As she stands upon the quay

What a romantic you are Frank. I really think you're catching up with our beloved Bard Rabbie Burns on your delightful romantic verses.

Great stuff, Frank and lovely picture.
