Endless Blue! Endless Sea! Poem by Captain Cur

Endless Blue! Endless Sea!

Rating: 4.5

Endless blue! Endless sea!
Oh! Fluid pulse of eternity.
Here I set my distant sight
on the full moon's guiding light.

Through the shoals of discontent
and the rainbows spectrum bent
by the crystal water's glare
from sol's rising restive stare;

stalling winds and bruising rains;
lightening sparks on white tipped plains;
fire skies and thunders dread;
quivering sails on slender threads;

my ship waylaid, my soul reborn
on a tidal swell, in the coming storm.
Here I sing this lay to thee,
Endless blue! Endless sea!

I love you….. with;

pirate heart and pirate soul,
ocean's stillness, ocean's flow,
pirate fears on stormy nights,
wistful tears on points of light,

pirate shores and distant lands,
pirate's raw yet steadfast hands,
pirate falls, flowing streams,
secret caverns, jetting springs,

lapping waves round earthen bands,
pirate's pure white costal sands,
simple language, primal truth,
pirate age and pirate youth,

summer's myth and healing breeze,
towering glaciers boastful freeze,
autumn's soft low hanging moon
and her rays pale crescent swoon,

spring's new life, green island coves,
budding blooms and, a pirate rose!

At the end of days,
my pirate's grave,
in hardened mud
under snowy ice.

I loved you….. with

my pirate's blood,
my pirate's life.

Translator notes: This is the second poem translated. A great storm was approaching and the Captain wrote this lay to the sea should the Malevolent
not survive. It has also been surmised that this entry could have been inspired
by the Captains love for his muse. Translated April 2012.

Original is unknown but this translation piece in english language is stunning and captivating. A translation juxtaposed would have been interesting. Some touching most lines may be quoted... summer's myth and healing breeze, towering glaciers boastful freeze, autumn's soft low hanging moon and her rays pale crescent swoon,

Bryan, the comment is very appreciated. The beauty and immensity of the sea. I fear the short sighted whims and greed of mankind will be her destruction with ours soon to follow. So let us sing to her beauty and hope our voices can have some positive impact.

We are the pirates in the high sea of life--We have to sail we have to survive-- With our love, fear, storms and struggles are here --We have to dive for the treasure hidden in the sea.-----A great poem by Captain Cur
