"Moonlit Arrival" Edwin H Gott arrived in Two Harbors 08/30/2023

Edwin H Gott arrived in Two Harbors with calm seas and a moonlit night.

In Agate Bay, where waters kiss the shore, The Edwin H Gott laker comes once more. Her steel frame etched by moon’s ethereal glow, She sails with purpose, steady and slow. Two Harbors waits, a haven in the night, A peaceful port 'neath heaven’s silver light. Guiding her in, with strength in full display, She finds her way as darkness starts to sway. The cargo waits—iron ore’s heavy song, A tale of journeys, both arduous and long. Yet for this moment, all is calm and still, As moonbeams dance on water, hill to hill. In silent grace, she docks without a sound, While sleepy Two Harbors barely stirs around. In Agate Bay, where past and present meet, The Edwin H Gott rests—her voyage complete. ---- Anonymous ----
