We are studying Paths of Exploration this summer.  We are in Columbus, Unit 1, Lesson 2.  As part of the enrichment study for this unit, my mom gave me the assignment of writing a poem about ships. So here is The Ship’s Journey, a poem I wrote for this assignment. I hope you like it! 

Cropped Sailing Ships (c.1886-1890) - Constantinos Volanakis

The Ship’s Journey By Gage Corlew


A ship at sea has a destiny,

whether It is to China or Italy.

A ship has no home,

it shall mostly roam.

From sea to sea they sail,

steering clear of strong gales.


A port sees many of these,

they sail in on the breeze.

Many travel to the Indies for trade,

of clothes from Persia, for emeralds or jade.

Many have dreamed of riches from the sea,

though very few find the mysterious key.


The ship’s sailors being so brave,

bob fearlessly on the waves.

And see so many beautiful views,

when out on a sunset cruise.

As the new day dawns,

They rise with stretches and yawns.


A boat at bay,

has a place to stay.

A ship at sea,

is almost completely free.

A ship at dock,

Will be still as a rock.


Many people who love the sea,

have a common silent plea…

of sailing away, 

for fun and adventures on the high sea!

    Wow! This is my first visit in quite a while to your website and I can see it has become an important part of life over there in Tennessee. I’ve been going down the main page reading all the book reviews and blogs and now I come across a magnificent poem. Poems are fun to write but they take more time to figure how to say what you want to say in a way that fits. But, let’s see . . . now that’s two entries I’ve read about the sea and sailing – seems to me you guys might need to move to the coast!! Great job on the poem! I’m thoroughly impressed! Hope to see y’all soon!

    • Hey Uncle Bobby!! And thank you! I worked hard on this poem, and I am glad people are appreciating it! Although It took a long time and was hard to make I enjoyed writing it and seeing my end result. I miss you, And I am glad you enjoy the poem! Love you!!!!! 🙂
