I love the water's edge. Thanks Mick. There's also a short film on YouTube that shows 'Desmond canoes' being built. And gradely is this blue-green livery - or is it teal.

Cyan canoes
Hitched fast and tied
Tilting and lifting
In the dappled pewter
Gun metal water.

Cyan canoes!
Bit of green bit of blue!
Jewel the Leeds and Liverpool.

Or do you feel
The hue be teal?
Or sometime seem
Aqua marine,
Turning oft to bright turquoise?
Amethyst, Celeste?
You take your choice!

Yet left to me
I think I'd choose
Lapsis Lazuli canoes.

Or even Lapis Lazuli.

' A poet's plea'

Diane Andrews, Diane Andrews
Come sail with me
On Cyan canoes.
