Emily



This ship has known many seas
embraced as stone all storms
She can sense all hidden hazards
and needs no captain

Past travels whisper upon these sails
her secrets safely stored below
Let others plot with measure
maps made by these adventures

Dear master, once commander
this craft will take no orders
Her rudder is not broken
but guided from within
