The Bold Buccaneer


One very rough day on the Pride of the Fray
In the scuppers a poor little cabin-boy lay,
When the Bosun drew nigh with wrath in his eye

    The lines 'gold banner of hair', 'he sank on the Captain's broad breast with a sigh', 'I'm your sweetheart from Bristol, my bold buccaneer', '“O my dear little cabin-boy, here Is a toast to the babe of the bold buccaneer' lead me to believe that the cabin boy was actually a women pretending to be a boy to sneak onto her lover's ship. He is actually a she, the Captain's babe.

    If I have read this poem correctly, it's actually a very touching poem and love story. (Report) Reply

    Agree with preceding comments, I'm uncertain as to what has transpired in this tale. On the other hand, I relish this tune's perfect music. (Report) Reply

    This doesnt sound like a modern poem. Boring story with apparent lack of purpose. It needs more clarity with what the author wants the reader to think and feel when they read it. On the bright side it has a strong use of internal rhyme scheme. It seems like the embodiment of most classical literature into a verse form. (Report) Reply

    I really think each modern poem of the day should be more representative of modern values, forms, and styles. This sounds more like the Fireside Poets of the 1800s. (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
