A Devon Lass

A Devon Lass
Form: Rondel Prime
Theme: Seas and Oceans
Subject: An historical figure

A Devon lass was Mary Read,
Raised as a lad the pirate queen,
All for her mother's wish to succeed,
To the world a boy was she seen,
Elizabethan trews were her screen,
So male in dress, in thought and deed.
A Devon lass was Mary Read,
Raised as a lad the pirate queen,
Avast, she swapped the widow's weed,
The pirate's code became her scene,
The woman's world that might have been,
A place she felt she didn't need.
A Devon lass was Mary Read,
Raised as a lad the pirate queen.
