The Captain at the Wheel By Peter A. Todd 04/23/2010
“Taking watch of harbor through days and nights With his hands firmly gripping at the wheel Our statue of yesteryear and today With his eyes fixed like hardened steel Many seasons and storms have passed him by Since the Captain was dedicated by our shore Through raging winds and sunlit skies The Captain has done his faithful chore The sands of time that has ebbed and flowed In circling our great statue of the sea Like the many stories of Fishermen of old Our Captain sets the spirit within us free The inscription etched below his feet So treasured to the Fishermen in many ways When the Sands of Time are stilled we’ll meet Those we have lost now raised by God From the oceans grave.”
