Tales of the Phantom Ship
From Top to keel ablaze
It sails the wide northumbrian strait
No-one knows her name.
It’s a ship afire they cry
Hard against the wind it sails
No-one can say why
Lennie Gallant (Breakwater, 1988)
People hunting for fish with arrows aim parallel with the water so that if they miss the fish they are aiming at they may hit another by chance.
