to offer or proffer

some words stroke my soul. say "caress", say "exquisite", say "tender": i see stars.
i sigh.
i smile sentimentally.
"hmpf", says my sensible friend."i rather think this refers to 'an auxiliary ship employed to attend one or more other ships, as for supplying provisions'".
i like my version better.


  1. I like your version as well, Lynn, but as a sailor I would interpret this to mean that this is a dinghy which is the companion to a ship named Surprise:)
    And I think that the way they've presented this information is quite poetic indeed!
