ANCHOR

06/04/2019

ANCHOR Though huge, weighty, bulky, it’s something you won’t see. Hidden, veiled out of sight on a cruise out at sea. And you won’t feel its strength when ocean waters smooth, But when sea billows roll an anchor the heart soothes.   Down deep in the sea bed the anchor does its work, Against the…
