'Mack' overlooking the Thames at the IMO Headquarters in London
Who's to say those eyes
Long ago did not see?
And do they not still hold the sea
And the sky ?
"He waka eke noa" (we are all in this boat together) (Maori wisdom)
" I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky...,"
"The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew"
"Aboard at a ship's helm"
"As you set for Ithaka, hope that your road is a long one.." (Thank you Christos for this beautiful poem) ;here it is spoken by Sean Connery with music by Vangelis)
