GOLDEN HIND

Arrr!   There she sails
the Golden Hind
full of riches
sublime...

from coast to coast she goes for gold
sailing high
sailing low
undercover
and on she goes-

circumnavigation of our globe between 1577 and 1580
he set sail on a very good day
Captain Drake
went looking for treasure he could pirate away

and then alas
he was knighted by the queen
he seemed to be living
some kind of amazing dream
and where formerly the ship was called the Pelican
she now was the Golden Hind
a force to be reckoned with
and she went sailing down the annals of time

    Love your poem. I made a model of the 'Golden Hind' long ago; what a great adventure that ship had with Captain Drake. Thank-you for the poem and the memory.
