She set her sails, Her anchor pulled up
With pride she sailed
From a harbour well known
With loyal men and a captain boy

The seas were calm
So beautiful and green
Blue and nothing
Yet she sailed with her men aboard

With her sails up high
Setting course to new lands
from the known to the known
on waters she sailed

With tides and winds
Her sails that fluttered
danced in the winds
kissed the new breeze

But alas at once
Lightning  that struck
on a topmast and her captain boy lost
one thundering stormy night

Her course reset with torn sails
Her pride that hide in tides so high
In agony and pain she battered the waters
But her straight was weakened, a storm so strong

The waters she battled
Her sails that fell one by one
there went the topmast,
And down went her

Now she lies, silent and pensive
reconciling and remembering
Her days on sea
Her men all gone


There she lies in a sea bed
Her pride lost, Her fame gone
there she lies in a wreck
Until found and preserved by new men………
