MIDNIGHT UPON THE SEA
I ll try my hand at a new style tonight
A style that may be pleasing to me
I would like to write of my feelings for
My first Midnight Upon the Sea.
sky is very clear, the air is so clean
the world is so beautiful to see
I'm on my large ship with most all asleep
it's Midnight Upon the Sea.
My job which I have been entrusted to keep
Is to protect all these men and me
To steer the right course and watch for danger
1t's Midnight Upon the Sea.
This one particular watch most men abhor
that's not my case, you see
For I have a great warmth deep down inside
Because it's Midnight Upon the Sea.
Nowhere could you find such quiet and grace
Nowehere else in this world could it be
Then way out here on these waters so calm
So calm at Midnight Upon the Sea.
But wait, what is that on the horizon ahead
Yes, it's lights that are visible to me
It will take some time to decide what it is
For it's Midnight Upon the Sea.
I have his plot now and his course may be
Hazardous if neither of our ships flee
Come right of my course is my safe move to make
To avoid danger at Midnight Upon the Sea.
Such an easy thing for anyone to do
Yet many times has ended in tragedy
For no one ever knows what dangers may lurk
Behind Midnight Upon the Sea.
Things are peaceful now, and calm once again
As a creation of God should always be
For nothing could compare as a wonder of life
To my first Midnight Upon the Sea
ENS Robin L . ADAMS, USN,
12 March 1973
