Penlee Disaster 1981

One Sunday morning,
in a Cornish church
the vicar stood up and spoke,
"We've given up the search,
I'm sorry there is no hope.

16 brave souls are lost at sea,
8 lifeboat men and 8 ship's company,
from the Union Star carrier,
always remember the 19th of December.

The people of Mousehole will pull together,
supporting each other come what ever,
the heroes gave their lives and tried their best,
now we must sadly allow them to rest".

  1. Very timely after the coastal storms and flooding in Cornwall last night.


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
