Captain Kidd's Connecticut

By Carole Roche

Eenie, meenie, miney, HO!
To which Isle did Captain Kidd there go?

As famous legends all say,
On Connecticut shores his loot does lay.

On his way to court to find,
if he was guilty of a pirate crime,

Captain Kidd did bury that gold
with hopes of innocence we are told.

But to the gallows he was sent,
And there the treasures sat—content!

Was it the Isle named Charles where it was stashed,
Or a beach that was long in Lordship perhaps?

Might it be under a Thimble Isle or two,
Or as far as the "New" London say a few?

To this day the true tale of Kidd's hidden riches
Has made many seekers shovel holes and ditches!

So now go...yo-ho-ho! And walk these shores,
Because all the found booty will forever be yours!

The Mermaids sing at eventide

By Leah Howell

The Mermaids sing at eventide
To sailors on the sea
They play on Triton trumpets
A tune so sweet and free

It haunts the souls of mortals
Amuses heavenly hosts
As their song threads ‘cross the ocean
Like the fingers of a ghost

And happy is the sailor,
who hears the Siren song
For the memory of it lingers
Throughout his whole life long
