Fair Maiden, The Titanic


Searching amidst, the sea of depths
The waves are crashing, under-swept
For today, another one has gone
Under, under, asunder beyond

To a dreary place, all dark and damp
To places so wide, and yet so cramp
Among the many, yet to be
And the others, there far beneath

These days are lonesome, and so wait
Among the tides, a trenched deep fate
The makings of something, born anew
But what is it she said, sinking too

To the end, she found her sin
Assumptions of pardon, passed within
Though still, a float she sat
She sat, she waited, then collapsed

The end, the end, the story begins
The last to finish, the first to rend
Last to see, the old dark sea
Then see, then see; below, shall I be!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
