This is from Nova Scotia folklore.

Peggy’s Cove, Where God Once Laid His Hand


The lightning flashed and the thunder crashed

The waves beat the ocean foam upon the rock

The screams echoed off shore lost forever more

Like the dreams lost there off that barren shore


Bodies like broken deck boards adrift on the sea

Folks on the shore stood helpless praying

To the God who guides the souls of the lost

As the wicked North wind bit deep like night time frost


Then a feeble cry in the darkness on the edge of stone

A girl child crying for her mother lost and so alone

A miracle survivor God presented to the ladies arms

They called her Margaret, little Peggy of the cove


To this day this scenic bay of lighthouse, pounding surf and rock

Where tourists visit, fishermen fish, artists and poets rove

A place of beauty unsurpassed, where God once laid a hand

Is one more of his reminders, this place called Peggy’s Cove

Beautiful, sad tale. Your words really give us a good visual. That wicked North wind is as cruel as it is beautiful at times...

The ocean has always held a charm for me, though when it's angry it scares the hell out of me. Nicely done Felix.

A wonderful feel of the sea, Felix. Vibrant words in a well done poem.
Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 3/22/2006
Dearest Felix...Stand up and take a bow for this is where you excel. You should write a book of sea lore...check out the history of the earth's costline and do just like this. Write the lore of the sea. With this as your gift you'll never fail.

You have my best wishes for this loving piece.

Peace and sunshine,

When did this happen, Felix? When did the stories begin? Always fascinated with folklore and how it originated. Poor little lamb.
Surely she must have had a purpose as the only survivor. I've never been to Novia Scotia. Do you have a pic of Peggy's Cove? I sound like a four year old, don't I? Oops, another question, lol. Chilling write. Enjoyed...

I've never heard the tale, but you convey it so strongly in verse and imagery, one will never forget once they've heard it. Well done, my friend, well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
