(by Heather Hernandez, Technical Services Librarian)

This week we're offering another instructive rhyme from Nautical Nursery Rhymes by Billy Ringbolt, which resides in the Peterson, Peter H. (Capt.) Papers, (SAFR 18665, HDC 571):


If a vessel astern of you closes at night,
Over the taffrail you show her a light;
Or a "flare up" would do if you have it quite ready;
And mind you, don't yaw, and lookout you steer steady.
