The Marauded Mariner’s Hymn
Gods of sea and gods of light,
Let me be another night.
Up and down the ravaged shore,
Let me seek my love once more.
Among the debris lay things so still,
Things that make me pale and ill.
What is stone and what is bone?
The sea hisses and howls, I am alone.
But waves and peril will not shake my hope,
My love is stronger than a hangman’s rope.
Despite the call from briny throats.
I never forget its hope that floats.
