Spoils of The Sea

The first to greet his maritime fleet
Was a lady to savor the poet’s feat

Beckoned from afar
To her lighthouse tower

He set a course for her safe retreat


He knocked on a locked bulky door
Of the castle on that distant shore

And waited to hear
Her footstep near

And the wooden door to swing ajar


She let him in, and welcomed him
With a smile that came from within

To the dining room
In view of the moon

She led this hungry man of kin


Full with grace and manner fine
Ready for him who’s come to dine

She served her dish
With love and wish

And the guest felt zestful by her wine


She baked him tasty shoo fly pie
Where the words mixed in, were never dry

The man ate all
And the crumbs to fall

He picked those up and raised them high


He gave her something good to eat
Which her palate deemed to be neat

The treat tasted great  
From his sailor’s plate

But it was really because her tongue was sweet


And the gift he brought her from the sea
She opted to ponder carefully

But it does so seem
She likes the seams

Of the spun silk spoils of Barbarie

Captain
