Your ship has just come in

I count the sails of galleons abroad on heaven's seas

They sail between the planets plying fantasy and dreams

I may not always see them when clouds obscure my view

But I know they are always there – how else do

Dreams come true?


Great golden ships of prospect such as Eros, Dawn, Divine

Their cargo sweet as honey, bales of love and sugar time

They'll be overhead by midnight their captains heaving to

With all hands to the capstan dropping anchor near to you


Watch out tonight for wonders square-rigged across the skies

Vast holds for lover's plunder, three decks for lover's sighs

The mizzen mast made ready, the lateen sail is trimmed

He'll be waiting on the foredeck, your ship has just come in
