The Story The Bards Do Tell


Round and round and round she goes
and where she stops only the beastie knows!
When Ahab spied the great white whale
He gave out with a bellow 'Thar she blows! '

Into the depths, deep, dark, icy and cold
Then up like a shot the legends have told
Testing their strength and determination
'Dare you stop me now? Are you so bold? '

Till Ahab's arm beckoned forward and back
Calling all of the crew to keep up the attack
Then turned the great beast to point at the ship
Driving inward to shatter the tiny craft's back

Down to Davy Jone's locker all of them fell
The first steps off their journey into hell
Leaving widows and children behind to sob
Forever more their story the bards do tell

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
