Burtle

Under the Water

Heard was the “Iceberg dead ahead!”
The titanic continued to keep its course

The captain feeling heavy as lead

Already feeling the weight of remorse

The impact reflecting their woe

The iceberg has so much more below

 

They began to sink to the bottom

The ship filling and breaking

Falling like the leaves of autumn

Those trapped start peeking

Under the iceberg lies a show

The iceberg has so much more below

 

Light begins to dance in the ice

Moon shining through the night

Little stars dancing like mice

More to be seen than at first sight
Entirely different view down low

The iceberg has so much more below

 

If only they could stay forever

Watching the beauty that lies there

As they fell down even deeper

Their lives complete, void of care

Because of the true sight and glow

Of an iceberg that has so much more below
