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




Hailing from Windsor, Colorado, Stephen C.
