Boy in the Boat: A Poem (The Magical Perspective of Youth)

That boy in a boat
out in the channel
cannot be older
than ten.

He tugs on a rope,  
hoisting anchor up;
but it falls back in

Frantically pulling,
it's anchors away,
as he slowly drifts
right by.

He acts afraid, so
I smile and wave,
but he gives me no


That man over there
on the water’s edge,
I know that he’s a

whitest flowing hair,
wooden magic staff,
seated by his dragon

Is he waving “Hi,”
or casting a spell?
Oh why did I drift
his way?!

Heaven help me get
out of range before
I become a toad
