Fog Horn

Fog horn on the ocean

soft nightly serenade

blowing sound

across the Sound

in a solemn refrain

heed the warning, seamen

this ship sails dark

in the evening, marine

layers of sinking

stars blanketed

by cotton blight

no charting

by constellation high

but blindly set forth

whether poor sight

bound for destination

listener wonders where

as your Doppler effect

dissipates the path

you declare
