This poem was written in response to a recent trip to Louisiana. I was enthralled by not only the riverboats but the cultural flavor of Shreveport, Louisiana in general. I enjoy William Blake's poetry and sometimes try to model my poems after his style. That's the approach I took with this poem.
PRIDE OF LOUISIANA
By: Angie Wolf
I went to a place of southern ease.
A riverboat floated ‘cross my mind
And my palate tasted a life of freedom.
Its presence left me without a care.
I went to the pride of Louisiana.
Mystery and peace I did find there.
A riverboat floated ‘cross my mind.
Its elegance brought me to my knees.
A more beautiful sight I’d never find.
The captain’s spirit seemed to speak.
I heard, “I am the master of the sea.”
At my command, these waters recede.
The pride of Louisiana is its name
Steered by two water-washed hands.
With the Port of Shreve, it shares its fame.
