Pirate's Moon

Updated on September 18, 2016


The evening lights are fading now, the stars are twinkling, moon is out,

The ocean's waves are swelling large, while the tide is moving all about.

The island's trees sway in the breeze, as the lonesome night bird calls,

Once where pirates sailed the seas, fought storms, amid all the squalls.


The ages in the past to modern times, pirates have sailed the Seven Seas,

Taken what they've wanted, left the rest, steered their ships as all pleased.

Under the Jolly Roger, skull and bones, have ruled the blue oceans, wide,

Have pilfered and plundered the countrysides, their reigning, none denied.


When the moon is just right, is so high up in the sky, is to be a pirate's night,

As they sail their vessels silently alongside, most ships give in without a fight.

Skull caps and patches, long sabers to brandish, boarding all that they can,

Stealing all the loot and that of any worth, then hiding it away, does this band.


It is a Pirate's moon in the month of June, the one finest time to make their haul,

As the boats of the crown, all to tarry around, their grand flags slashed and to fall.

Their ships, they all sail, now under a different veil, each led by the pirating crews,

It's a pirate's life, upon oceans tonight, and for those foolhardy enough, to choose.

      An adventurous spirit today whonunuwho.

      What new terrains are you seeking to discover and spearhead?

      Personally I loved your first three lines. But then I can be biased. I love the haunting quality of the moon illuminating the ocean at night.

      Namaste

      A most creative poem about pirates. Love the spirit of adventure and mystery that weaves its way with the pirate ships.

      It must be full moon or something. I also received out of the blue a CD from a friend - of music about the moon! Love your poem, it's also fun.

      Moon reflecting off water is so mystical. Pirates or unabashed spirits of the night? Love it!

      There's something so attracting about the moon and pirates who have roamed the Seven Seas. One of my favorite subjects. Thanks Eric and Blessings to all. whonu
