Calahan Skogman


'O Sails Up!
'O Hearts Break Down!

The fate of one's wealth,
In the hands of another,

So deny thy faith,
And deny thy brother!

For cruelty comes,
And misery will follow,

As memories fade,
Push us aside,

Hope is not gone, A fair bearing light,
Hope is alive!

So hill' yon young sailor!
Sky be us might!

Bravery come,
And Willingness Sound,

'O Sails Up!
'O Hearts Break Down!

    Wow. That is amazing. I like how it shows the dependence upon one another and that having hope and faith can bring you through, or the lack there of can bring you down.
