“How it was?” shawn clarke age 14

I’m relieing on the ship, That will float into the harbour, Bearing a letter from Pip, She moves so fast she’s a blur, In 1850 we didn’t have technology, We needed the mighty tall ships, We had to tackle the mighty seas, Just to deliver news from Pips. And when they dock on the piers,… Read more »

‘Those Amazing Tall Ships’ by Jasmine Hearnden Aged 14

As the carnival arrived, We all ran and dived, Into a town so happy, You could never be snappy, The colours were so bold, And the air never cold, And then came the ships, Oh those graceful Tall Ships. As I looked to the sky, I saw the fireworks fly, The sky illuminating, And suddenly… Read more »

When I go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and the starlight to steer her by, And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking, And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn… Read more »
