Thread Name: songs about building boats/ships?
Subject: RE: songs about building boats/ships?
There is, of course, the Dick Swain setting of the poem about the The "Marco Polo" and the figurehead carver that has the chorus (as best I can remember) which goes

" While my hand is steady, while my eyes are good
I will carve the beauty of the wind into the wood"


I truly moving song and brilliant piece of work about a figurehead carver visualising his work at the bow of the clipper ship leading it home. If it isnt in the DT search the Forum I am sure there has been a thread .
