    100th Anniversary Poem

    (Considered to be the greatest maritime
    disaster of all time - 14/15 April 1912)

    Fair maiden of the ocean deep (1)
    This mighty vessel lost to sleep
    A jewel `neath a moonless sky
    `Twas fate that she so soon would die

    Against the ice her doom was sealed (2)
    Just ten percent of it revealed
    As close against its buried side
    With grace and dignity to glide

    The greater part was hid below (3)
    For so it be with frozen snow -
    A jagg`ed fortress `neath the sea
    A dark, unseen catastrophe

    Her belly slashed, then set to die, (4)
    (Upon the ocean bed to lie) -
    Into her hull the ocean gushed
    People and objects swirled and crushed

    But no-one listened to her cries (5)
    Nor even to her calls did rise
    And none aknowledged all her flares
    Nor sought to answer all her prayers

    Two hours and forty minutes passed (6)
    With all her charges holding fast
    Just twenty lifeboats, not yet filled,
    (And fifteen hundred hearts were stilled)

    Water seeping into her heart (7)
    Tearing her very soul apart
    Invincible of White Star Line
    She lurched, she groaned, with severed spine

    O`er time a saviour ship arrived (8)
    To aid the ones who had survived
    To take them thus into her care
    A ship of safety anchored there

    But in the darkness of the night (9)
    In ice-cold waters void of light
    Bounced scattered souls upon the waves
    Descending to their watery graves

    Then all the while, when hope was gone, (10)
    In calm repose the band played on -
    `Nearer My God To Thee, ` they think,
    As, with grace, she started to sink

    One hundred years her memory (11)
    Still lingers `neath the raging sea
    Within the hearts of all bereft
    Of those whose lives have long since left

    They said that sink she never could (12)
    But oh, dear God, she surely would!
    Invincible of White Star Line
    She lurched, she groaned, with severed spine

    And though one century has passed
    Lost souls in memories are cast
    Their eyes as stars in heaven dwell
    Reflected in the ocean`s swell

    With tales of life and secrets kept
    Of those who loved and those who wept
    Your stories you will never tell
    Farewell, my friends, farewell, farewell...

    The sun upon the shimm`ring sea
    Will ever your companion be


    Verse 1:
    10 April 1912 - depart Southampton bound for
    New York - North Atlantic crossing.

    Verse 2:
    14 April 1912 at 11: 40 am she hit an iceberg -
    she was travelling too fast and had taken a
    more northerly route than was appropriate for
    that time of year.

    Verse 3:
    The iceberg lay just 1000 yards ahead but was
    not seen due to it being a moonless night.

    Verse 5:
    The crew of The Californian went to bed as it
    was thought that she was having a party.

    Verse 6:
    She held only 20 lifeboats instead of the 64
    which she was designed to carry - just one-
    third of her capacity, and these were not

    Verse 7:
    Five compartments were flooded (only four and
    she would have survived) , and just before
    2-20 am on 15 April she broke up as she sank.

    Verse 8:
    RMS Carpathian responded to her cries for
    help and proceeded to rescue lifeboat

    Verse 9:
    1500 lives were lost, of which 53 were
    children: 52 third class, but just one
    first class! Two dogs were saved.

    Verse 10:
    As they did on deck - all members of the
    band were lost, and subsequently were
    regarded as heroes.

    Verse 11:
    1912-2012: 100th Anniversary Poem.

    Verse 12:
