Isle of the DeadA Poem by Alexander Emberson
This is based off a well known painting by Arnold Böcklin called, "Isle of the Dead."
Throw your coins to the man that waits
Just beyond the mist it waits
The boat was simple, small, and stout
The robed man in front watches over the sleeping
“I can see the trees!”
