Big Lift Ferry Poem F230

So smooth a ride that
I swear the world was moving –
And not the ferry –
That engine purring being
What’s making the world go round

Notes to this poem…

Thee ride was that smooth, but I had to account for the engine purring that I could hear.

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
