Ode to a sailor

Donna Carnes
2008 SIGMOD record  
sailor, fleeting mood image of you; all sailor in bear grace, rough hands and poetic dream; etched in sunlight at land's end; teacher in the rough most elegant and simple. sailor, you draw me like moon pull; you don't know how alike you are, you, the sea, and the force of wild wind; so like the sun, the comfort warmth of you; I will miss you all the days of my life.
