    Oh, that bar !

    Crossing the Bar


    Sunset and evening star,
    And one clear call for me!
    And may there be no moaning of the bar,
    When I put out to sea,

    But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
    When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

    Twilight and evening bell,
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

    For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have cross’d the bar.

    (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

    ‘‘Go Small, Go Simple, Go Now’’ Larry about his 24' engineless Lyle Hess cutter Seraffyn, I'll think 24' is indeed small and big enough.

    RIP Larry, much strength wished to Lin, and everyone else who loved him.

    Here's Mr Efficiency's poem (thanks for that) read and sung to us . . .
