Eileen Valentino Flaxman More advice from our whalers . . . From my collection https://evflax.wixsite.com/ishmaelsapprentice
Chapter 39 - First Night Watch - Stubb sits alone, mending a brace. Listen in on his 'philosophy' …
We know not
what lies in store, so
Why not laugh?
What's worry for?
Why not laugh.
The bubbles that break
on your glass and mine,
the froth on our lips
from this ale divine -
We smile and we grin
guffaws to the brim
cuz I'd rather not know
'what's coming, my friend.
Why not laugh?
Chapter 68 - The Blanket - We watch Ishmael in the aftermath of the slaughter ... (lines in quotations are from the text).
In the midst of
cutting the carnage,
"herein we see
the rare virtue
of a strong individual vitality."
Man conquers nature once again.
But it takes many men
to accomplish the deed
and only one to question it
and begin to think of
a better way.

S Ye Laird dear all, this is my poetry magazine... cover is one of our editor's drawing... somehow it reminded me of 'Moby Dick'. In our archive, Eileen's poems are greatly appreciated by our readers. I'd love to feature more from her 135 chapters so that I may send her a print-copy! Cheers, Eileen. https://anthonywatkins.wixsite.com/btssept2017/poetry-translations
