Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Disasters; Shipwrecks

Was it thy lord the sea
That wrought this tragedy,
A spouse to spurn?
Or didst thou faithless prove
And to thine ancient love,
The land, return!

The lesson of thy fate
(Alas, for thee too late)
In silence saith,
"Once wedded to the main
Unto the shore again
To turn is Death."
