Her eyes sparkle

"Cast off forward; Cast off aft"
We slide slowly out to sea
Into the shipping channel
Then it is full steam ahead

Engines throb their rhythm
She grabs my hand and pulls me
On deck we go up forward
The gulls scream up above us

The wind blows in our faces
The salty spray makes her laugh
Her eyes sparkle with delight
For we first made love last night
