SAILORS MIRTH



My mind, my soul, my body
My strength, my sorrows, my joy
My shadow, my beliefs, my faith…
What a confluence of virtues
My valiant heart, my venturesome brain
My velvet skin, my vibrant nature…
Amiable treasures of mighty men of valour
The king makers in Valhalla
Crowned me verve in Africa
Rhymes of victory
Chanted by the Vikings
At the secret place of Valeria…
Generations yet unborn
Shall subscribe to this new VEDA
Supplied from the vamous hall
Of ELVASO SHESSY
