I will remember Her

On a sea of time floating
According to a clock made of rust
And captured by a logged entry
In the Journal of Dust Occupied Air

It is true
She will sail again
Once she is gone
For the memories of waves will again bless her

She is a fine ship she was
And she is a ghost that tells tales to the living eyes here

As death for now.
rides aboard her

Artist's Description

This poem is Based on and Inspired the Photograph and photograph’s description. The image is titled Ghost Ship
Photographed by RedBubble artist Peter Rivron

In the Photographer Description Peter Rivron writes:
The Ryde Queen paddle steamer was built in 1936, she operated a ferry service between Portsmouth and The Isle of Wight.

Withdrawn from service in 1970, she opened as a night club at Binfield on The Isle of Wight, this is where I would spend most of my Saturday nights in my teenage years.

Abandoned now she still remains on this spot slowly rotting away.
Since taking this photo her funnel has collapsed.
