Violet – (Our Penultimate Poem)

Violet

Violet

Lament (Part XXVIIII)

In the first years of the last century they built the sisters three.
The Olympic, Titanic and Britannic, the largest ships to put to sea.
In 1911 The Olympic collided with The Hawk
and Stewardess Violet Jessop was one of the crew aboard.
The Titanic sailed in 1912 so history books record
and Stewardess Violet Jessop was one of the crew aboard.
In World War I, hospital ship Britannic, hit a mine as her reward
and Stewardess Violet Jessop was one of the crew aboard.
Violet sailed on until 1950 when she retired and left the sea,
she stayed at home and kept chickens, until she died at eighty three.
