Every day, you’ll find me in this spot,

Staring out to sea, as like as not,

Waiting for my love to return to me,

From weeks, or months, out on the sea. 

I check the wind, the swell, the tides,

And ever so much more besides,

I want to welcome home my galley cat,

The feline on the  ‘Tit For Tat’.
