LISTAPP POEM: A TRAGEDY TOLD IN LIMERICKS
I'm trying something new here and wrote a rhyming poem. I feel like limericks are often depressing and always about the sea.
- •I once loved a young man named Taylor,
- •A brave and adventurous sailor.
- •He went off to sea, but sent letters to me
- •Each day he was gone, without failure.
- •I've heard tales of disastrous weather
- •Causing all mighty ships to untether.
- •Though uneasiness grew, in my heart I still knew
- •That once again we'd be together.
- •For I always remembered his vow
- •That he'd one day return here somehow.
- •"My love!" He would cry, a teardrop in his eye,
- •My dream long a fantasy now.
- •They say one must forget and forgive,
- •But long I sat, cold and pensive.
- •His last letter I save, while denying his grave,
- •For forever in my soul he shall live.
