HMCS Huron


Sunken sailing ships

Sunken sailing ships (Photo credit: Boston Public Library)

I will break the face of my compass
and set the needle
windward
I will align my sexton
with the sun
and stare until my eyes
turn to dust
o merry dust
blown into the waves
and let the shadows steer this wreck
for I have cut the line
to the rudder
and let the tides sink my ship
when it is my time
this merry old dust
and her stalwart tub
let me sink with my colours high
