Ode to Friday: Leunig


God bless this tiny little boat
And me who travels in it
It stays afloat for years and years
And sinks within a minute.

And so the soul in which we sail
Unknown by years of thinking,
Is deeply felt and understood
The minute that it’s sinking.

~ The Tiny Boat, words and pictures by Michael Leunig, A Bunch of Poesy
