Aquarius the houseboat,
has left the RiverGlen
early one saturday morning
towed up river, along with the wrens.

It took a while to move her
she had made herself quite at home,
amongst the willows and the gum trees
where the possums like to roam.

She was towed out quite discreetly
though the trees lost a branch or two
a nest of wrens on her back deck
remained as 'Guest with a View' !

The morning was calm and sunny
just the slightest of a breeze,
a nudge and a push with Kens boat
then Aquarius was helped pass the trees.

Lisa and Sue were on board,
shouting out their commands with such style,
Aquarius picked up towed speed
as Ken towed her, her nautical miles.

Geoff was the rope man that day
controlling the port and starboard
as the bow cut her way through the water
her decks were washed with new waves.

Aquarius now settled past white sands
her new home on lush grassy banks
where the possums will play with the lizards,
as Eagles watch snakes with their glance.

Goodluck in new moorings Aquarius
Lisa have fun with the space,
no more rules or regulations,
coz its yours, your happy new place !
