Rusty Hulk

There looming high above the sand
a once elegant structure beached
no longer able to sail the seas
 her hull weakened and breached

what were once such elegant lines
crumbling rust has eaten away
leaving a skeleton frame work
and memories of her heyday

her bough buried deep in the sand
still standing proud for all to see
barnacles decorate her lines
where once fine colours gleamed brightly!

with each tide this vessel erodes
until nothing but a shell is revealed
a sandy grave for such a beauty
for her sad plight has now been sealed
