Written by Lucy A. Cain
Clear the way before me Lord
Guide every step I take
Give me courage to journey on
For every mile I make
I only want to walk with You
Lord, on each path You’ll lead
Keep my feet within Your course
For there You’ll know my needs
Others will take the path we trod
The path where You made way
Be a light unto their feet
When they reach the end of day
Guide us on to journey’s end
Where we’ll meet You face to face
Thank You for the journey
That led to Heaven’s place
Written by John Masefield
I MUST go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a gray dawn breaking.
I must down go to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
As plentiful as the grass that grows
Or the sand on the shore
Or the dew on the lea
So the blessings of the King of Grace
On every soul that was, that is, or will ever be
Simply A Pathway

A quick walk around the gardens brought these colors to life.
A pocket full of posies;
Hush! hush! hush! hush!
We’re all tumbled down.
A pocket full o’posies-
Atishoo atishoo we all fall down.
A bottle full of posie,
All the girls in our town
Ring for little Josie.

One of those days when the Fishermen's Wives Statue seems to come alive.
"The wives, mothers, daughters and sisters of Gloucester fishermen honor the wives and families of fishermen and mariners everywhere for their faith, diligence, and fortitude."

Gravity overtakes friction.
(And after more than one hour, sitting in the front row, you picked this moment to stand up?)
