Th’ Men o’ th’ Ocean Sea

It was th’ tide o’ kings an’ kingly men,

Whe’ the worl’ was young

It was a tide o’ greatness,

O’ great men, an’ great deeds,

An’ monumental moments.

Thay shook th’ pillars o’ heaven

whin thay traivelt upon th’ land

Th’ winds stood fast in thair presence

When the great ones stepped from their pavilions.

Thair voices raised were heard by all

Wi’ thair fists raised thay commanded the clouds

One and all shered in thair glory

Thay came ‘n’ thay teuk

They spread their great fortunes across the seas

Wi’ the constant star to guide them

Thay returned, nae as men, bit as legends

About jedwardnajera

I am an artist and a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I published several novels. Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, Dust of the Moon are among them, available through Amazon Books. I have spent over thirty five years in a classroom. I am now retired from that profession. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. Now I am continuing the tradition by posting my own stories and misadventures. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
