Shipwrecked Vowels - Poem by Ron Stock

Now the hail - was a beast
With its ice - and its snow
And its plume

And the gale - brought the reef
Spared one life - took the boat
Luck was due

Next a wave - from the sea
At high tide - near a shoal
Sent a spume

Left a whale - on the beach
On an isle - in a cove
Near a dune

Man all day - near a creek
By a fire - made of stones
Sang a tune

Of stout ale - and salt beef
As he cried - of his woes
It was true

So he ate - orca meat
But the light - in his soul
It was blue

And sometimes wry!
