A Snail Post (though not snail mail.)

Snailing Ships

 

I saw two snailing ships

Marooned on a cement sea,

With melting masts and bobbing bows

Surging slow and free.

 

With inches for leagues, minute knotts

Pirate ants came sharking

Speeding swift on the solid sea

Journeylets embarking.

 

Across the sundial shadow,

From Roman nine to three,

The vessels voyaged ‘cross the vast

Face of time and sea.

 

And as the ships in bygone day,

They faded o’er the edge,

And disappeared to Legend’s end,

Beyond the boundless ledge.
