The Hungry Sea The twinkling smiles of the ocean, The sunlit smiles of the waves, Lured many a fearless sailor To a premature watery grave. They embarked when the sea was tranquil, And sailed out on the deep blue main, When suddenly without warning, They encountered a hurricane. Their vessel was torn asunder, Before the doomed men could flee, And every last one of the met his death In the jaws of the turbulent sea.
