Esperance is pronounced with the 'a' sounding like an 'o', and it means hope.


The ship lies broken on the shore
it almost reached it's destination
but will rule the ocean no more.

The sailor cries upon the shore
because his beauty "Esperance" will sail no more
so many storms did they best
and so many sunny days did it deliver him home
to his love that waited so hopefully for him.

The ship lies broken on the shore
no longer will the waves caress the bow
nor the wind fill the white sails
it will never again hear the song of the water.

The sailor weeps upon the shore
because his love waits so hopefully for him
and he is stranded on this distant shore
and his other love "Esperance" lies broken on the rocks.

The lady weeps upon the rail
the wind blowing through her hair
her search has yet come to no avail
for her sailor never returned home
and she won't rest until she finds him.

The ocean cries a thunderous wail
because one of her lover ships
can never return to her touch

The sailor sits desolate on the shore
and so his love finds him
pulling him aboard so he can sail as before
but he knows it will never be the same
as he finds some more tears to cry
because his other love will forever sit broken on the shore.

so serene and sad...this story was a nice breath of fresh air...the story closed nicely and it was all good...good work.

Jeremy

Be it in the truest form, or a desperate lack thereof, fail not to understand that the inspiration is love.

punkrockerrobin: Thank you! I will most surely try to keep up the good work.

Jeremy: What a way to put it, "a breath of fresh air." Thank you for the wonderful comment, it means so much to me.

This was a beautiful poem. It flowed very nicely. I enjoyed this very much, as I do all of your work. You definetly have my vote.

That's a crazy poem! You've always read my stuff and I wanted to see some of yours, and this gave me a great impression! Creative and different, I think it would be a wonderful addition to the book and add great variety. Thanks for writing!!!

*Tear* *Sigh* *POKE!* Steph, this is beautiful. I can't pick one thing I liked the best, but I'd have to say the big usage of the word, "Esperance" (I still can't pronounce it). You got my vote *Thumbs up!* Peace! ~*~Kirah~*~

I lie all the time - infact Im lieing right now!
