Waterfront View

Maryland is a welcome location to visit, and the city of Cambridge provides several beautiful and relaxing waterfront views.  Big Sky Buckeye’s bride grew up on the Eastern Shore.  Enjoy the poem as well as the photographs.

Maryland’s Eastern Shore beckons one and all

Traveling to Dorchester County as its final call

The immense Chesapeake Bay patiently awaits nearby

Inviting the spacious Choptank River to always drop by

Choptank refers to a former Native American tribe

Assimilating into society, today they no longer thrive

Night’s darkness transports stillness into the chilly air

Raining lightly as water flows into a creek with care

Cambridge Creek stands ready around the clock

Creating a home for numerous small boats to dock

The inner harbor used to play host to larger ships

Processing seafood and more to load at a fast clip

Morning light arrives at the peaceful creek

Waking up waterfowl and people who greet

Canvasback ducks convene at their winter home

Sharing space with seagulls, never being alone

Activity stirs up quickly around the picturesque creek

Preparing crab boats, for delicious treasure to seek

A small sailboat motors quietly down the water’s chute

Passing beneath the raised drawbridge with a salute

Peace and tranquility return there every night

Illuminating the calm harbor water with lights

While the impressive Choptank drives its waters along

Advancing always toward the majestic Bay, like a song

  1. Thanks for the journey along the waterfront with you.
    I could hear the waves splashing, the seagulls’ call,
    the boats docking, the sea lions’ bawl,
    and enjoyed the poem, the thoughts and all.
    Thanks for helping me broaden my VISION today!
