Poem: Tugboat

| |

TUGBOAT

\r\n

This children's poem is part of a series I'm writing. Transportation poems just for children.

\r\n

I'm a tug boat, small and stout,
watch me push those big ships out;
bump and tug for all I'm worth,
guide them safely to their berth.

\r\n

Early morning, hear me roar,
keep that tanker out from shore;
nudge the liner into place,
see my Captain's smiling face.

\r\n

Cargo ship needs help from me,
fighting wind and angry sea;
keep it centered, round the side,
push him out with change of tide.

\r\n

Tireless tugboat, work all day,
making sure the ships don't stray;
push to left and tug to right,
shut my engines down at night.

\r\n

Wave goodbye to all the crew,
heading off to places new;
back to port in setting sun,
Harbor Master says: "Well Done!"
