My very own favorite and isn't this life, in general too?

There it rests in the reeds
Along a quiet marsh
Darkened wood with rusted sutures
Weather worn and harsh
One lone oar lays aside
A crabtrap tossed and broken
The quiet breaks for a small sloop
Shiney, new and oaken
Between the two the memory
Lies in the older boat
For painted flakes that dot the sides
For the memories still afloat

2006 Susan K. de Vegter

Just a question, die boat from age, or it is just we that discard them when our eyes tell us so?
Yes, boats have memories too, one just need to go onboard and listen.
