The Waking Tempest


The water was as clear as Mother's glass
The sea was massive, so Father knew,
The breeze was as calm as a countryside lass
The wind was whispering, so was the crew,
The vessel was built strong, first of her class
And the ship sailed over the ocean blue.

The water rippled like folds in Mother's dress
The sea was waking, so Father knew,
The breeze raged like a sinner who wouldn't confess
The wind was rising, so was the crew,
The vessel was built strong, made for none less
And the ship rocked over the ocean blue.

The water was willful, like Mother's past
The sea was boarding, so Father knew,
The breeze remained like a soldier, standing there fast
The wind fought hard, so did the crew,
The vessel was built strong, splintering at last
And the ship sank into the ocean blue.
