A Shipboard Romance (A silly ditty.No.1)


A man and a woman on either side of a fence
For long strangers, once met by sheer chance
A spark of love was lit in an instance
Its flame was fanned through many a glance
And eventually got blazed into a hot romance
Until it was steadied through an alliance
Their minds then went upbeat in a dance
Life breathed out a new fragrance
And their faces gleamed in a rare radiance

But soon their love was tested through penance
Days slouched on without any parlance
Until their life was couched in dumb silence
In secret, they nursed many a grievance
And saw each other with a vengeance
It often took a turn of violence
From this bondage, they longed for a riddance
And through a divorce, finally sought a deliverance

    In such a short space it blossomed and then all turned sour, such is life, great turns of phrase. (Report) Reply

    Unfortunately their story is all too common, but it makes a fun poem. Perhaps you could continue their story in a sequel and give them a happy ending (Report) Reply

    To romance they climbed up and to deliverance by divorce, they fell headlong down. If the spark of love had been fanned by affection, sacrifice..., they would not have longed for riddance. (Report) Reply

    It isn't silly- its a ditty of logic! The mono rhyme scheme is very appealing and the musing too has a charm of its own.I enjoyed the beautiful poem.! (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
