Author Hannah Allen: The Widow of a Sea Captain


White sails on the seaside,

Tents made for two

Against the shoreline,

A sea captain and his widow

Swam to the moon.


The tide rode with the twilight,

And rolled back with the dawn,

She laid upon sand,

He kissed the rising sun.


Gone, commandeering clouds,

Uncharted islands,

Longing for lost latitudes,

Sailing never dies,

Nor love as deep as the blue.

About the Author

I grew up in a small town in Florida where I currently live. A pretty normal 90’s childhood. The youngest of three. A proud Aunt. A current college graduate figuring it all out. I’ve always enjoyed writing and songwriting. A big fan of 60’s Rock ‘n’ Roll helped guide me towards my love for poetry. I look forward to the many adventures ahead.
