Islands of Hours


Life is short,And pleasures few,And holed the ship,And drowned the crew,But o! But o!How very blueThe sea is!
- The last poem written by Righteous Bandy, the nomad Poet of Abarat

Life is short,
And pleasures few,
And holed the ship,
And drowned the crew,
But o! But o!
How very blue
The sea is!

- The last poem written by Righteous Bandy, the nomad Poet of Abarat
