I watched her depart New York as a young boy,
Standing by the shore of the Narrows,
I watched her elegantly simple lines pass by
and take lucky people to exotic destinations
in a style all too forgotten on board today's modern cruise ships.
She was a lady ... a lady with a long past of catering
to her clientele in a very classy and individualized way.
Soon she will be but a memory ... Long Live her Memory!
