Stamm, Florian M. / Sea of reflection

Blum, Debra
[Poem]


Roots of Courage. 
Approaching end of world war. 
An Aging Battleship. It's voyages. 
Night Sinking in a Vast Sea. 
Loss, Grief. 
Wait for Salvation, that nearly never came. 
Triumphant survival. 
Respect for a Captain. 
Loyalty in Motion still, more than 30 years after Death. 
Determination to Admonish Injustice. 
Wait, spanning decades, for Absolution. 
Salute! 
To Honor, Victory. 
A Half Century Late. 
Fiction? 
No. No way. 
Believe in miracles? 
If not, you should. 
Hear the account. 
And you will.
