There was once a land in a foggy hollow
Where great ships did sail the sea.
Through darkness and sorrow they cast their sails
To march and face what be.
When the moon did start to rise,
Many ships returned with prize,
Fish and treasure galore!
But not all ships would see the sun
For they did rest beneath the waves
Solid on ocean's floor.
Sailors and seamen, their own lives' past
Would sail the seas forevermore
Salty air and busy seas
Ghosting from shore to shore.
Years and years, oh time did pass
The hollow that time forgot.
Great ships and sailors once proud
Were simply left to rot.
But the fog can still be found
In stuffy, dusty memory
When little children gather 'round
Bright-eyed and reaching for story.
