    I know of Andrea Doria, but can't remember the Andrea Gail. This is really well done, Craig. Big congrats on your win.

    Poetic license meter or not this is beautiful; and perfectly matched to the form. Congratulations. Love, Joyce

    Congratulations, Craig on your winning piece. Optional wording for line 14 might be "to leave Andrea Gail without a chance." The pronounciation is probably license still but the meter is better. I know "the" seems to indicate a ship rather than a person; but most would realize that without the modifier. Delightful piece.

    Thank you Reason, I considered that but "the" is important for the reason you alluded to but I might have considered it if it truly helped the meter but it doesn't because Andrea has a dactylic pronunciation ( / * * ) so it fails your way too but has more of a chance the way most us pronounce it in the US--AN drea--( / * ) thereby melding the final two syllables as one.

    My gosh Craig, you give such life to this deathly tale. You have written the rhyme and meter so perfectly. A perfect storm of poetry. How terrible that day for all at Gloucester shore. love, Kathy
