and two lighthouses at Nash Point
warn ships of the Channel's peril.
The sea cares nothing for virtue
devouring both evil and good
and those who lie inbetween.
Yes, lighthouses were built but came too late
to stop the steamer Frolic's awful fate.
78 perished including Captain Jenkins,
victims of infifferent stormy seas
the Bristol Channel becoming a tomb
and when the wind whistles on Nash Point
you can hear the ghosts of the doomed,
a reminder of the power of nature
and that we are helpless and oh so small,
really of no significance at all.
