Tossed by conflicting seas, with spray from either side,
This ‘boat with passenger aboard rides the turb’ent tide.
A sailor with experience not fit for storm this rough
Tries shifts of windward mast but finds this not enough,
For each try to come about brings more disrupted crew
Till rage of wind, torn sail’s grin, drives him into blue.
