A Bygone Fantasy


Steamer, Paddle Steamer, Boat, Ship, Hamburg, Port


Sleepy days below the bluffs

On the quiet-moving Mississip

Smoke clouds rise in steady puffs

From the Memphis-bound little ship

Her paddled-wheels moving round

But in her hold no cotton – found

It’s tourists now that she does haul

For drinks and a look around

Just a ninety minute trip
