Stormy weather, ship floundering, becomes a victim of the notorious Wrecker's Light.


Wrecker’s Light



Dark and stormy moonless night


Sailing ship on homeward flight,


Pitching, rolling, decks awash


Sailor prays on midnight watch,


Sails all furled, masts a’creaking


Waves are smashing, throwing, heaving,


Out to Port a light appears


Welcoming, allaying fears,


Men are dancing, cheering, drinking


Soon be home they are thinking,


Sudden lurch sends them reeling


Ship is ripping, tearing, heeling,


Cruel rocks and wrecker’s light


Sent them to their death that night.


 



Jackie S Brooks
1960
