for All Hallows...

Restless Wind Marina

Well, I tied my old boat to the dock and I was careful
I knew strange things prowled the darkness and so I was prayerful
People had been disappearing all across the harbor
Hobos, hippies and that old retired Navy barber

My first boat was lost in Hurricane Katrina
Some say thereís a curse on Restless Wind Marina


I was drinking wine below deck and the night was breezy
Something on the misty pier had made the waves uneasy
I looked through a porthole at a flash of distant lightning
And I thought I saw a wicked shadow of a night wing

Then she appeared just like an astral ballerina
Floating near my rusty boat on Restless Wind Marina


There were whispers that she danced for tourists after sundown
On a stretch of boardwalk that was dangerous and rundown
Giles the Juggler says that she was under some suspicion
In the disappearance of a local street magician

And the sea breeze sounded like a haunted concertina
As she stepped aboard my boat on Restless Wind Marina


She was lovely and exotic
And her dark eyes were hypnotic
As a sterling full moon watched us on the starboard side
O her skin was alabaster
And her kiss became my master
I suspected this was how that Navy barber died


But my faith was steadfast and my prayer was loud and fervent
I thought thatís why she declined to make my soul her servant
Then the moon rolled westward like a mystic silver dollar
And I dreamt of bones interred within a sunken trawler

Something bit through all my memíries like a dark hyena
I remembered why I live on Restless Wind Marina


She is gone now and sheís drawn to towns with magic histíries
I suspect theyíve all had murders that are tragic mystíries
But she has no hunger for a soul already taken
Iíd been sleeping and that knowledge needed to awaken

Though Iíd perished on that boat in Hurricane Katrina
Sailorís roots have kept me moored to Restless Wind Marina

This is great. I like it a lot.

Hi Robert,
I understand that. I only write a couple a year now, when the spirit hits me. I decided long ago I'm not going to be the next great country songwriter, no ins, I'm out. But it still feels good to put pen to paper now and again.
