The Sea of Stories

Listen to Shaun read his poem ...
When I was just a little lad
I swore I’d set to sail
Upon the Sea of Stories
No matter storm or gale

No fearsome beast would turn me
No maelstrom could dissuade
The Sea of Stories called me
And she would be obeyed

Come sail, come sail along with me
Where tales like breakers grow
Come sail the Sea of Stories
As the winds begin to blow
