Listen to poem:
"recently scenes of early life have stolen into my mind, like breezes blown ..."
Quote by _Samuel Taylor Coleridge (from his writings)
Remembering turbulent ocean force
Poseidon was the primary source
Storm-driven night true nightmare
Loudly ship's bell did clang and blare
Was in my cabin feeling unwell.
Captain on bridge composed and sure
Man in his element he did endure
Seismic sea enraged with natural power
Sailors fought elements hour by hour
Remembering how this was pure hell
Dawn did break on less turbulent sea
Staggered on deck at pain to see
Was pleased to note we had arrived
Ship's company thank god had all survived
Not a memory on which I dwell.
