The Boatman is Thankful

The boatman is ambivalent.

He is unsure whether this side

or that side is preferable

whether pauper or king it be,

but he is still thankful

even with his trepidation

for his boat and his oar.

And he knows travelling

back and forth that the journey

is the thing

That matters.
