|Message From The Sea|
Once upon a bottle
upon the deep blue sea
was a message coddled
for future eyes to see.
The captain of the ship
lifted bottle aboard ,
pulled the cork from its lip
and read his'try alored.
Twas by a man called noe
of ancient yiddish word ,
Captain of ark named Joe,
forty days of rain heard.
There was a list of things
aboard good ship named Joe,
two cows with bell that rings
and creatures known to Noe.
No snakes nor worms were there;
no rats nor mice that chew ;
a hen and cock up stair;
a lamb and ox for stew.
An ass to carry load
and all of worth to man;
grains of oats to be sowed;
none the things that were banned.
End of list had a warn
bottle must hold the list
of all things in the barn
then cast into the mist.
Where ark did settle down
is secret all untold
though searchers ever frown
questing ark worth much gold.
Some say ark lies on mount
hidden in covered cave
though ages gone do count
thousand tries to find grave.
Things made by humankind
all seem to rust and rot
but Bible with its mind
will prove what is or not.
Someday in ripened time
when Bible unbelieved
the bell on ark will chime
and hell will cease deceive.
Thus the ark as twas built
will ever spur us on
to dig through dreams of silts'
e'er born, e'er worn adorn.
And so until the time
when mystery is solved
riddles will always rhyme
and search will e'er evolve.
