Poetry Thursday courtesy NRU

Found this lovely piece on the Navy's tradition of having the first log being written in verse.

This excerpt was too lovely not to have as the entry for Poetry Thursday.

Through heavy winds
and pitch and list
our thoughts encompassed
by those we miss.
As hours turn to days
and days to months
we think of the place
we came from once.
We think of the people
of our country.
We think of how thankful
we are to be free.
As we continue to send
Strength From the Sea.
