The Waters
'Waters!' said I, 'thing of neap tide.'
To warn me about the marine
I crave the aquatic, Atlantic admiralty
Death shall bring reefs
Aboard seaborne ships
Waters, Lakes, Seas
All moisten around me
'Waters!' said I, 'thing of neap tide.'
To warn me about the marine

Premium Member WOODLANDS VISIT



A touching sip
Glimpses now grip
A Woodlands trip


Old times come round
Feel the same grounds
Old touch new found


A train ride tells
Styles a fond spell
Just where you dwell


A new blank page
Ideas now stage
A lovely age


Studio suite arts
A brand new start
To lift your heart

Premium Member Henrey Morgan A storm on the Spanish Main
Henry Morgan is my name
Being a pirate is my fame

A landlubber wasn't for me
Fortunes were made at sea

From port and starboard cannons roar
Through Spanish ships cannonballs tore

Strike your colors or face our scorn
Cutlass and pikes will make you regret being...Read More

War Grave, Name Unknown

Untimely death, why come so near
To taunt my soul with mortal fear.
I cannot go – so unprepared
So full of life and yet so scared.
The world’s held nothing for me but strife
And yet, O god, I cling to life.
A fatherless boy...Read More

Who fought Alone

Untimely death, why come so near
To taunt my soul with mortal fear.

So full of life and yet so scared.

In you the Dogs of War unleashed again
  an Expeditionary Force by sea;
and in the ground in years fourscore and ten
  lie bones of Empire and Admiralty!
How in muddy trench infantry joining
  charged the lines on Ottoman...Read More

lust in love
Wriggled in her arms.
Lost in an adventure of romance, moving far afield.
Though I have no weakness for writing, 
my story got underway.
Wallowing in the admiralty of her beauty
Adorned with beautiful antique ornament
Adulterated with the laudable attribute of nature
Epitomizing the 6th...Read More

The Lusitania (Part One)
More than twelve hundred souls
Meet their watery grave.
German U-boat patrols
Spark a fatal shockwave.

This echo of the past
Resounds throughout history.
Rousing war unsurpassed,
Deadly shroud of mystery.

The empire aids Cunard,
Loaning millions in pounds.
Lord Inverclyde toils hard
On deceptions unsound.

They hide admiralty
Within their merchant fleet,
And...Read More

Gray-eyed Prince

The birches and the lindens –

in hair have fire.

On the road is noise –

The white horse runs. 

Autumn, as a sorrow,

has spread everywhere.

Where, from whom

do you hasten,

my Prince with the gray eyes? 

Night has lowered its black velvet downwards,

Month ate...Read More

The noose is a nightmare for any seafaring man
Especially those who thrive the best they can

Danger lurks on the waves like a mugger in the shadows
The only concern is the prize and the gallows

For the young pressed into service have...Read More
