    Shaking

    The wind is shaking my sails to-day My dreams have gone avast, I can't cope, Amid this ocean there is no hope, The wind has shaken my confidence to-day, I'm not even certain I know the day, The rain falls and splashes me with spray, Will we survive, and tell our dismay, The wind...
