POETRY

The Artemis

by Stephen C. Curro

Four engines propel the Artemis


Through fair and crystal skies
 

Between clouds thick like boulders
 

Above green earth and turquoise seas
 

A hull of steel and steam and hope
 

With cannons held in strict reserve
 

Her crew guides her with passionate vision
 

In the spirit of filling blank pages
 

Just for the sake of filling them
