Love's the boy stood on the burning deck
trying to recite "The boy stood on
the burning deck.
" Love's the son
stood stammering elocution
while the poor ship in flames went down.
Love's the obstinate boy, the ship,
even the swimming sailors, who
would like a schoolroom platform, too,
or an excuse to stay
And love's the burning boy.
