On dry dock.
Sporting a tag
with the word,
Standing tall
on supports.
My motors cleaned
and inspected.
My exterior washed
and buffed
to a gloss.
My chrome
Safely tucked
under a cover
custom made
to fit my frame,
I’ll sleep
until spring.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
