Legend of The Compass Rose

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!"
