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,

acceptance, and

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

into it.


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,

Thank you.
