Lovely poem. Well done.
I espcially like the way this stanza sounds:
Winds twist bow to stern
Up is down
Right is left
Still, I row

I also like the reptition of "I row." Very pretty.

Striking contrast of images--the storm and rough seas / the peaceful harbor and faithful lights. I'm not familiar with the song/hymn but I like this poem, especially the final stanza.

Just beautiful imagery and poignant meaning. This is very rich.
The concept of this poem is creative and interesting.I liked the short stanzas, the line breaks and the repetition.
There are a few abstract words that could to be replaced by a concrete image, such a "plight", but it worked anyway!
I love the free verse and the depth of the poem. Great job.
