POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
In an effort to reorganize and update my writings, I am combining poems which share the same title with different part numbers or similar themes. The above four poems have been published separately under their respective titles. I hope to continue this series, Corsairs Of Old, in future writings.

If the Alestorm band find out about your poems they will have you as their permanent lyricist! The sea is awaiting!
