THE PIRATEER, by            
First Line: The lightning flashed and thunder crashed
Last Line: Lay still in a secret sea.
Subject(s): Pirates; Seashore; Ships & Shipping; Piracy; Buccaneers; Beach; Coast; Shore

THE lightning flashed and thunder crashed,
And the foam flew high that day,
When the black-flagged ship and her treasure hoard
Sank down in a stormless sea.

The great guns cried and brave men died,
And the fight was hot that day,
When the outlaw and her pirate lord
Went deep to a lifeless sea.

The bright sun beamed and still waves gleamed,
When the divers searched next day;
But the treasure-ship and all on board
Lay still in a secret sea.
