Ah, lads, and lassies, mought I tell-
Some tale o’ heaven, mayhap hell?
Of labyrinths both cold and dank-
An’ barques that sailed, or some that sank...
Perhaps a tale of warriors bold-
An’ their last stands on some far shoal.
Backs to the sea, wi’ sword in hand...
They fought an’ died to the last man.
O’ maidens fair an’ villains vile-
An’ wolves which ate the new born child?
Or buccaneers wha’ sailed the Main-
Their likes will n’er be seen again.
Why, I knew bloody Cap’n Teach-
No port his legend didna reach...
L’Ollanaise, his bloody crew...
O’ cutthroats...worst I ever knew!
O’ unicorns, and mermaids fair...
I loved their lovely seaweed hair...
Another dram..me voice does fail-
I’d spin another Traveler’s Tale.

Wonderful Gunslinger....just simply wonderful.
Reminds me of a sailor friend of my uncle's.
He used to come around about once or twice a year and fill our heads with wild and unbelievable stories of his travels.
(He told me the same story three times in three different visits all with different endings. LOL  But he was a joy to listen to though..I think he actually believed he lived half of the stories he told.)

Thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable read.

So, I'll slide another dram down the bar
please tell me more of lands near and far!

wonderful story! Enjoyed it much

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."
