This post is Part 9 of a writing series titled Davy Jones.

From nightmare into nightmare then I fell,
And saw the monsters of the darkest deep
With demon eyes that blazed of fiery hell;
I closed my eyes to an eternal sleep.
Yet with my eyelids closed, still I could see
The spinning, turning, writhing mass of men:
My brothers, you who drowned that day with me
And sank to ghastly depths beyond our ken.
Imagination plays uncanny tricks;
I saw the wings of angels all around,
And they, with gentle smiles, my soul transfixed,
And brought me courage, even as I drowned.

So sing, my brothers! Sing a mournful tune,
Amidst the barnacles and dead men's bones.
As waves are stilled beneath a cold gray moon,
Sink down to murky depths with Davy Jones.
And sing farewell to all the world above,
For I shall see no more my lady love.
