A Marble in Maritime – Mamie13

A Marble in Maritime


Dipping and diving goes my ship.

Heading towards the shore, where the Polaris leads.

Through the cloaking fog in the Irish sea

I see a glowing Marble.


Mystically, the Marble glows on and through it, a lighthouse I see

A star to every wandering bark.

I have dwelt in the rubble of Love’s victims.

But through the Marble I fulfilled my dreams.

and here I am with you in Maritime.


A martyr to love I have become.

Your titillating hairy

And voluptuous body have manipulated

my soul, mind and heart to love.

And now like the ancient Greek pigeons

I long to fly freely with you in Maritime.


The mascot in my route

And a star at night

You blow a rosemary to my scent to make it sweet

And I’m scared to miss you a minute

lest the tempest rage

Sing with me along and make gala in Maritime.


The amethyst in my jar

And the jewel so pure

I’m truly in love with you

So Abide with me in Maritime
