The Return!

High on the desolate cliffs a woman cried

pleading for her man to return

captain of a navy frigate two centuries ago

on hearing his ship had sunk

no survivors threw herself into the angry sea

in this life no more wanted to be!

 

From that day of sorrow felt by many families

the loss of husbands and sons

to the sudden storm the day before Christmas

it’s said pleading voices are heard

on the winds at the very hour the ship was lost

with the terrible human cost!

 

Drawing many to have the sensation to jump

while walking on the cliffs

a soft sobbing cry as they to look out to sea

and come across the grave

where she lay forever for her love waiting

for his return always aching!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
