The giant fell into the raging sea

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Visitors” by Joan Naviyuk Kane: door, open, stands, together, young, small, shore, wick, bar, teach, weary, entry

The giant fell into the raging sea

On the shore of the sea and washed by waves

Weary of running after young Jack’s flee

Had he caught Jack he’d be one of the slaves

Nature taught him and now he’s on his graves

Small Jack opens his door of freedom

Stands by the bar, happy that he’s saves

Together with Mum they sing te deum

Opening the treasure box by the quay

Entering their home and having their tea*
