Careers for Kids: The Sailor READ ALOUD POEM for children by C.J. Dennis


THE SAILOR (Evergreen Tales theme music playing.) I’d like to be a sailor–a sailor bold and
bluff Calling out, “Ship ahoy!” in manly tones and
gruff. I’d learn to box the compass, and to reef
and tack and luff; I’d sniff and sniff the briny breeze and
never get enough. Perhaps I’d chew tobacco, or an old black
pipe I’d puff, But I wouldn’t be a sailor if . . . The sea was very rough. Would you? (Evergreen Tales theme music playing.)
