The Tall Ships

I saw three ships, three tall ships

Riding on the sea,

The waves quaked, and the fishes quaked,

And the wind sighed sorrowfully,

For on their decks, and in their holds,

Rode doom and misery

 

I saw three ships, three tall ships

Anchored on the sea,

The wind refused to fill the sails,

The sky wept copiously,

For the berths were filled with pain and tears

And they hunted a new country.

 

I saw three ships, three tall ships

Speed shoreward from the sea,

And the trees moaned, and the birds fled,

And the land cried woefully,

For on their prows sat greed and shame,

And the death of history.
