The Glorious Pirate

She is a giving goddess and yet she is a thief
 exploring her horizon she will mightily spreads her wings
claiming all she touches and enlightening what holds her
she is a true paradox that no poetics can defer
she has a furious dance but never breaths a sigh
for all her truth unfolds on the kindling of a lie.
