*walt Whitman The Haiku Poet - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

some dream
on the deck you've fallen
cold and dead

with mournful tread
I walk the deck
my Captain lies

the steady keel
the vessel grim and daring
the bleeding drops of red

for you bouquets and
ribboned wreaths
the shores a-crowding

the port is near
the bells I hear
the people all exulting

from fearful trip
the victor ship
comes in
