Crimson’s Creative Challenge 164 The lifeboat “Louisa.”

In Porlock Bay there was a great squall

that cut the tow of the Forest Hall

the Watchet lifeboat couldn’t launch there

so they called the boys from Lynmouth fair

without hesitation their brave men

said we will do what we can for them,

over hill and moor they dragged their boat

and from Porlock bay set her afloat

they set off from Porlock beach

so that those poor crew they then could reach

you may not believe but this is true

how they saved the lives of that ship’s crew.

  1. That is a moving slice of history. I knew, with your personal history, that you’d give us something good. And I wish the New Year brings you something good 🙂
