As of today, I have finished the Day 1 poem. My remaining unfinished works in progress (Day 2, 3 & 4) will be posted and I will continue to post my progress until the three poems are complete. So far, I have completed poems for Days 1 thru 11. All are posted. Take a look at them if you like.

This is the Day 3 Challenge as it appears on

“…I challenge you to write a sea shanty (or shantey, or chanty, or chantey — there’s a good deal of disagreement regarding the spelling!). Anyway, these are poems in the forms of songs, strongly rhymed and rhythmic, that sailors might sing while hauling on ropes and performing other sea-going labors. Probably the two most famous sea shanties are What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor? and Blow the Man Down. And what should your poem be about? Well, I suppose it could be about anything, although some nautical phrases tossed into the chorus would be good for keeping the sea in your shanty. Haul away, boys, haul away!”
