THE HARBOUR AT NIGHT At night the yachts drift into the harbour With their beacon lights to guide them in Not too close to the island shore itself Before casting their anchor into the sea As people just walk past on to the old pier to stand so they Are ready on a clear night With the sea and the sky in the background of The colours of ultramarine with a hint of lilac and blue Ready for the sky to be lit up with fireworks to mark the end of Cowes Week On the Isle of Wight which is a major event in the sailing calendar itself REBECCA FINCH, Chapel House, Newcastle.

A NEW YEAR'S WISH As I walk along the sands just before the Dawn still in a world so full of wonder as a New year has begun the mist still on the sea As it kisses the soft cold sand and the seagulls' Longing cries as they search for another lonely Friend and somewhere in the distance way beyond The harbour wall a great steel ship sails onward To another port of call and somewhere in my Mind are happy thoughts of home on this day So fresh and new as the old year has so Quickly flown as I softly pick a pebble up There is seaweed everywhere but gone are Dark night storms when great waves were crashing In despair the shoreline so long and winding On this crisp bright new year's day as a Cold sweet winter sun within the dark clouds Plays a cold wet winter's breeze brings little Teardrops to my eyes as it softly blows along The sands to give the seagulls such surprise And with this pebble in my hand as I throw It into the sea I would make a new year's Wish that we all live happily TOM KENNEDY, Wardley
