Sailor in love

Sailor in love

                        a cargo of mineral,

           during my watch  
                        in Baltimore,  
           my decision critical   
           either sign off, or stay more.

           Her letter came 
                      like a thunderbolt....

          She writes, she loves me,

           mineral cargo 

                            turn to gold,

          even if it was, 

                          had not the power to stop me...
