I have to grr a bit at today’s prompt (sea shanties) because I have an ocean-themed poetry collection out on sub and it sucks to do an ocean bit I can’t add to it. So grr. yarr. Whatever.
Tides roll high
Tides roll low
Tides roll us away from hearth and home
Seas are green to the south
Black to the north
Gold in the morning and blood at dusk
Colors change with the wind
Change with the moon
But there’s colors at the bottom only dead men know
Colors at the bottom where the dead men go
Waves roll high
Waves roll low
Waves roll us away to distant shores
Waves smile in the south
Rage in the north
Murmur in the morning and whisper at dusk
There’s waves at the bottom only dead men know
Waves at the bottom where the dead men go
Secrets at the bottom only dead men know
I want rum now.

Wonderful. Also, I like that ‘grr’ became ‘yarr’. Thumbs up from Julie.
Thanks! Yeah, it needed a little pirateness since I couldn’t figure out how to get some Vikings in there 🙂
I want rum, too. This is wonderful.
I need some beach time, lol, Thank you!
