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.

"The lines and verses are only the outward garments of the poem and are no more really it than your ruffles and flounces are YOU. The real poem is the soul within them . . . and that beautiful bit is the soul of an unwritten poem. It is not every day one

Thanks!

Thanks!
