41 - Seacorn

At the break of that eventful morn
We were destined
to set our eyes upon the unicorn.

Baskets of the choicest fruits
in fresh and fragrant profusion
anchor weighed
sails set
the little vessel
as though partaking
of our joyous expectation

Bounded merrily over the water
Gave berth to the reef
against whose frowning rocks
the sea lashed itself to foam

Every eye on board
and on shore
turned toward
the unicorn
