POEM OF THE DAY: A Grain of Salt

by Wallace Irwin (1875 – 1959).

A Grain of Salt

Of all the wimming doubly blest
The sailor’s wife’s the happiest,
For all she does is stay to home
And knit and darn—and let ’im roam.

Of all the husbands on the earth
The sailor has the finest berth,
For in ’is cabin he can sit
And sail and sail—and let ’er knit.
