Some Pirate Song

Fiction By Madalyn Clare // 12/23/2016

The waves are a’calling,
They have since I was small.
The men are a’sailing,
To one another they call.

To which will I give my heart,
For I know not who ‘twill be.
Will you calm the seas, my love?
Will you calm the seas for me?

I meant to comment on this when it was first published. ;) haha but life has definitely caught up with me. :P

It's sooooo beautiful. I love the rhythm and rhyme pattern you used.

The sentiment of the poem really resonated with me. Kinda hit a very tender heartstring of mine, and brought tears to my eyes. Seriously. So sweet, tender, and most of all; true. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece with us.
