O' Ye Captain of Mine

A Poem by Adam M. Snow
"

O' ye captain of mine, In my quarters we dine, Tell tales of a journey once spent. Life on sea across more than me, To the ends of the Earth we sail.

"

O' Ye Captain of Mine

By: Adam M. Snow

 

O' ye captain of mine,

In my quarters we dine,

Tell tales of a journey once spent.

Life on sea across more than me,

To the ends of the Earth we sail.

The stars guide us without a fuss,

Through the uncharted sea.

To a land of youth of many uncouth,

To a battle of bloodshed wage.

O' ye captain of mine,

Of the ship 'Vast Divine'

Rotted many years to now.

The wars once fought and gold once sought,

Laughter of the forgotten crew.

The songs we sang with our devilish slang,

Bottles of rum in hand.

The joys of blasphemy as we sailed the sea,

Into the sun cast reflection.

Mysteries untold of a journey behold,

The stories of forever youth.

A fountain of gold where mermaids lay cold,

A journey of death it was.

The blood rage, the inferno blaze engage,

Corpses taint the sea.

Sounds of cannons blasting, soon everlasting,

Fills the salty air with greed.

The treasure once sought claims lives of all who fought,

And yours as well, O' captain of mine.

Tonight I dine in my quarters alone,

To forever cherish your stories our own.

I enjoyed this poem. Nothing better then to listen to a old man or woman tale of life and pillage. The flow of the story made the scene come alive in my vision. The complete poem held my attention and I like the way you ended this outstanding poem.

Loved it, i like how its like the ocean and ship sailing life i seem to picture when reading it, as well as it seeming like a letter or memory. Great rhyming. And lines i sank into like a ship. ^.^ lolz. Loved these lines here:
O' ye captain of mine,
Of the ship 'Vast Divine'
Rotted many years to now.
The wars once fought and gold once sought,
Laughter of the forgotten crew."
...And I also loved these 2 also:
"A fountain of gold where mermaids lay cold,
A journey of death it was."
