Reflecting on Whitby.  

Fog rolling cross the
haunted hallow'd turf,
where Ceadmon composed
so much, now lost.

Mist hidden, the clarion gulls,
ring their laments over the
rain cloaked roofs.

Dark Esk flows
through the town below,
built on the blood of whales
and harvest of herring shoals,
the fame of Cook,
and Bram's bloody Count.
