There once was a ship called Endurance,

Through the pack ice did she sail,

Marked in Antarctic occurrence,

One time in a killing gale.

 

She was a strong barquentine vessel,

Designed for uneasy terrain,

‘Til upon ice did her hull nestle,

And upon ice was cleft in twain.

 

In coldness we must needs remember,

She holds fast from bow to stern,

Forever in silent splendor,

In coldness will memories burn.
