Old boats
Docked in the harbor
Their engines still
And all sails down

They riseó and fall
Then riseó and fall again
With the tides
From dawn to dusk
Throughout the night
Yet stay where they are

It is dead winteró
With the air very cold
The waters nearly frozen
And thereís nowhere to go

Or nowhere to go
Where they havenít been before

A fineó white snow
Just drops from the sky

In silence
Not comment
On a vacant sea

Ahhhh, but the commercial fishermen and women still return to the sea in the winter.

A lovely description of a place I have visited many times.
