Home of the yacht "RHUMB DO"










On the Quay   1770


'Who are you, my little man, sitting woebegone and wan,

With your little bundle by your side, waiting for the tide?

You are very small to go to sea,

And I wonder what your fate will be;

Fever, or shot, or Captain's sword,

Or - "Midshipman overboard!"

But don't be doleful.  Lift up your head.

Here's an apple for you, and some gingerbread

Now, boy, who did you say you were?

"Horatio Nelson, sir".'


Dorothy Margaret Stuart
