Ezra Pound read and reinterpreted
a poem that should’ve been lost to,
not only time, but to the sea.
“The Seafarer”, one of the longest
elegies that I have ever read,
speaks of mortality,
difficulties we endure throughout
our course in life.
Dedicated for individuals
going through any
hardship that one can and will face.
When you read it a little closer
elegy or not,
its tone melancholy;
like a bedside confessional.
Toward the middle and ending of the poem,
he brings faith and fear of God
Out of respect for all religions,
I tend to stray away from the topic.
Having lived a life on the sea,
the feelings and emotions within,
strikes a chord I thought I had left behind.
Whoever you are that penned this poem,
