Best Poem of Severien Meyer

Sailors' Pride

Riggings rattle, Nor-Easter blows,
Warning you and me and all of those
Who dare defy a power so great,
To watch and wait and stay.

Seamen prattle, stories told,
Bragging loud and strong and oh so bold,
Of storms they looked right in the eye,
And lived to sail again.

Watching awed, her crashing bow,
For fame, respect, and honor now,
I ride the crest, the fearsome sea,
Perhaps... to sail again.

Sails furled, lines made fast,
In port and safe and home at last,
My sailors pride now satisfied
Bids tell my tale again.
