Harbour Giants

Harbour towers – where sky meets sea

Modern markers of maritime industry

Along with container jetties and working cranes

Our ports of old will not be the same

In days of yore, when it was the spires of the masts

The marked the docklands of our nautical past

But low those days seem gone for good

Our diesel ships – steel, rather than wind-driven and wood
