Felix N. Hansen contacted me to tell me of a poem she'd written around the time of the 90th Anniversary of the sinking of Titanic, and here it is, you can contact her to comment on her work by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
THE UNSINKABLE Titanic
A glorious day when I first set
So sturdy and powerful, how could I fail?
All splendor and grace, my funnels reached the skies
What fault could be seen in anyone's eyes?
As my passengers wished, I carried
them to sea
Alas, they were far too overconfident in me!
Onward and onward they ordered me faster
For who could foresee any coming disaster?
Plunging into shadows as forward
Too late the warning, iceberg straight ahead!
The ocean filled my heart, my bow weighted under
Flooding my soul until it tore me asunder
Down we sank into the fathoms
Hidden away by the darkness's sheath
So remember me, shivering beauty, ship of dreams
Washed away forever with the echo of hopeless screams
And so do I rest in the deepest
Where I am the sunken, Unsinkable Titanic
