The hardiness of small things
A tremor stirs the sea
Amid the darkening skies:
The waters roil and seethe
Along distant shorelines.

In midst of dire storm
A small craft bobs along
The surface of the ocean
All tumult to defy.

Hardy, battered oars
Plunge headlong through the foam
As towering surf collides
With creaking oaken hull.

Will such small craft remain
When storm and wind subside?
Or shall the ship and crew
On ocean's floor reside?
