Xaiver Quinn & Legend Of The Compass Rose
« on: September 22, 2008, 07:45:29 PM »
My Newest Works Enjoy:

 Xavier Quinn

He seems no higher than a grown man's shin
And with  malicious grin, he has great pride in…
 Tracking down those who pillage, plunder, and relish in sin!
Chances are slim, you'd escape from him!

East India Company's best man.
Some say he's more like the devil's own right hand.
 The Isles of Caiman to the ports of Japan,
He is known by every pirate and courtesan!

 A seemingly decent  gent, who's speech is most eloquent .
'Tis hard to believe he is so hell bent,
But one look, and it becomes quite evident.
That he desires to rid the world of every malcontent!

 Known to bring down men twice his size, with the blaze of Hades in his eyes.
When he does "deal" with those he despise, it begins to crystalize.
 One can agree to "compromise" or meet with his own demise!
A word of warning to the wise… Xavier Quinn is "evil" in disguise!

Legend Of The Compass Rose:

She was beautifully ornate, the kind that would make gentry salivate.
All clamored for her attention, but to none did she give her affection.
None, but one…none, but me… Robert James McGee.

Being the master of the Scorpion, known as the seas greatest  champion,
Upon the Spanish Main, did indeed go against her father's grain!
He is a man of cardinal direction, who believes in "sublime perfection."

Thirty-two points he did give, on how "A God fearing man, should live!"
However, in me he saw no such qualities, and despite her pleas…
I was no longer welcome at his door, and was forbidden to see her…forevermore!

So with broken heart in tow, I returned to the sea's ebb and flow.
They say such things in time do fade, those fools know not of what love is made.
For death plucked my beloved Rose, even in this… my love for her, still grows.

Then one moonlit night, my eyes beheld a most radiant sight!
Standing on deck almost froze, was the translucent form of my Rose.
Therewith in doles-id tone, she sang a song we'd both had known.

Of our love…a love so rare…that nothing on earth can compare!
"Let this symbol be a sign, betwixt your heart and mine.
Every chart you course, and map you see, know that you are not that far from me!"

Lively and lovely, indeed, m'Lady!  Of course, I may be a bit biased, but these are very well done!  The meter, rhythm and rhyme, especially of the "Legend" should be put to music!  Keep the ink flowing and your thoughts and inspiration churning! 

Your Humble Servant,

Blushes thank you!  I would love to add these to your next collection!  Now a question about legend is it acturate to what a compass rose is?  Except for the love story.  If the next crew decides to keep it in  I would like an explination of the compass rose at the end of the poem.
So those that have not a nautical background have a better understanding.

Hmmm, now that's something I'll have to do some more research on.  And I'll expect to see more of your work for the next two books!
