There once was a ship that did drown without sinking

It left its homeport through a maze of white steam.

The horizon was shrouded,

The ocean no color, just like the sky

That was bleak as a dream,

The bows silent

And silent the cheers of the people ashore:

Silent tears, silent laughter,

Silent movement of oars.

Maybe they were thunder,

But none cared for the flash

Silent waters,

Just the ship set before it;

And soon it faded

All consumed by the mist.

Some say silently it called for help,

Maydaythrough still water,

But if anyone heard, none cared

– silence answers –

So the fog’s hiding somewhere its still sailing wreck.
