It was a mid-day in May When red sunlight lazily lay Peering through cloudless skies, Casting down on ocean's brilliant dyes That Captain Jack and his crew of three sailed for the magic solitude of the boundless sea. Lillian stood on the surf-tormented shore, Her eyes' scintillating soul the pain she bore. Jack consumed her heart, in all and in whole, And with it he took his truant soul.
The day had grown to twilight dim As Night birds sang a solemn hymn That echoed across the night-tide's rush riding waves' glow with reddish blush. There appeared a bright cold moon As if a talisman, not a warning too soon For the once calm waters began to swell from the chilling winds upon them fell. The tossing tempests had grown and grown as mountainous waves appeared as death's throne. In solemn silence, Captain Jack and the three became slumbering souls beneath the tumultuous sea. The lurid sea, the lurid sea in all the pageantry of her beauty.
Moon tints of purple and pearl evolved into brilliant liquescence when Lillian appeared as crystalline light, the poetry of her presence. Her face shone sorrow and her soul she borrowed as she pleaded to the stars above, wishing the return of Captain Jack, her one and only love.
Out of the sea's immensity, into a labyrinth of pearly light, Captain Jack stood a proud tower holding his stone flowers toward Lillian , he held them out right. Her heart palpitated at the welcome sight, her eyes beamed with glee One step then two then vanishing into the cold embrace of the sea.
