kom in mijn boot

Kom in mijn boot
Wees maar niet bang
Het is mooi rood
En de tocht duurt lang

Kom in mijn boot
De beste zeeman ben ik
Bij mij ben je niet in nood
Kom erin, het geeft je een kick

Kom in mijn boot
Het een mooi en rood
Je bent mooi en eenzaam
Zeg me alleen je naam

Kom maar aan boord
Wij maken voort
Mij boot is niet zo oud
Het is maar van hout

But you are not eenzaam/lonely!
Ginnie Hart: come in my boat

Come in my boat
Don't fret
It's pretty red
And the trip takes a long time

Come in my boat
I am the best sailor
To me you're not in need
Come into it, it gives you a kick

Come in my boat
It's a nice and Red
You are beautiful and lonely
Tell me your name only

Come on board
We make on
Me boat isn't that old
It is but of wood

You're right, Philine. I'm not lonely but it';s a lovely poem. smile

Rather charming
Ginnie Hart: Every time I see a boat gable stone now, Richard, I immediately say to myself, "Boat Friday!" smile
They are a lovely addition to a building Ginie
Ginnie Hart: And I'm like a little kid whenever I find them, Bill (as you know by firt-hand experience). smile

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush, and yes...one brave soul!

I saw this kind of ships at the Lake IJssel, impressive. Nice weekend, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, HF. They remind me of the salmon boats we see here from time to time.
Those brick seas, make for heavy sailing...........great find and lovely shot, Ginnie : )
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. Rough seas indeed...with no sense of getting out of it!
Great enjoyable art.
Ginnie Hart: It's very soulful to me, Sartenada. Thank you.

well spotted and captured Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Adrian.
A nice bit of decoration!
Ginnie Hart: I love these gable stones, Tom.
He looks kinda lonely thou sad
I watched a film called The Whale, produced by BBC, a couple of weeks ago. Something about Moby-Dick, I thought you might like it too smile
Ginnie Hart: I'll keep my eyes open for it, LC, since we often watch BBC! Thanks.
Gable stones, weather vanes, construction cranes and goodness knows what else. By gum, Ginnie, you will never be at a loss for things to photograph.

This Boat Friday gable stone is a real humdinger and just has to be one of a kind.
Ginnie Hart: You have me pegged, Beverlay. What can I say! grin Thank you.

Framed so well.....a great image
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Shane.
Amazing artistry in the stone. Nice picture!
Ginnie Hart: We see these stones everywhere we go, Hollie, and I "collect" them in my files. I love them! smile
Wonderful Ginnie. What a find!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I love these gable stones.
It doesn't look like he has far to sail. lol
