A THOUSAND SHIPS

Is this the face, this old hulk in the salt marsh,
is this my lady with creaking timbers
and peeling skin?

A mere figurehead, a turkey prow,
missing one oar, grandiloquent, vainglorious,
still fighting the old sea-battles
with the wind and waves

the thousand ships
that lie at the bottom of the sea.
