Son Of A Sailor

by William Semo

A second book of poetry by acclaimed Laurel Highlands writer/poet William C Semo. This one, like the last, dealing with the personal journey of his life. Son Of A Sailor, as his father was a Merchant Marine in WW2, an account of his love for the sea and his journey in it best described in his forward:

(I saw it on the wooden shelf, a vast book of nautical mythology across time, at the discount bookstore where I frequented. It was in a sea of books, one lone thick book that nobody read by the dust cover jacked that lived up to it’s name, full of sea shanties and selections from ancient books and lore. It was a bland book with a mere mention of the waves on the cover, an anthology of sorts that caught my eye. Obscured, the tender poetry within across the centuries roared up within me and crashed upon the shores of my soul as if it were the first time I’d fallen in love.

When I brought it home and sat it down, my father’s smile let me know what I had always known, something spiritual and sacred about the sea. He picked it up and feathered through the pages, looking at indexes and knowing I’d probably never read it, but knowing that as with all mariners you need an anchor at times and a good strong rope to remain tethered to it. This book was all of these things.

“You bought a book on the sea.” He seemed to gleam a thought that only gave a mere mention of the times he’d spent as a Merchant Marine, all of it as vast as a seascape of words images and ideas that scanned the horizons of his mind. “You know, it is in your blood. Some of my fondest memories are of the sea.” It is something I will never forget, that look, so tender with a tear in his eye, “You are the son of a sailor.”

My father still roared with the sea, subtle, the tying of a knot or the reminiscence of things long lost like an old photograph. He had spent the better part of his younger life during WW2 and after on Victory and Liberty ships seeing the world building the image of the man he would become. Through it all, there was always the sea. There were the people he’d met during the war, after the war and all of the in-betweens. The storms and gales, the silent times when the sea reflected on him and through. There was a time when a strange meteorological effect made the clouds look like a city and he swore he was looking into heaven. Traveling the world though, it was those people he met on his journey and sailed with, port to port. The women of the world he loved but share a brilliance in their eye, a glass of cognac and whatever he could do to help the war torn world. Kind, but if somebody had a problem with him, he settled things “on the dock.” “On The Dock Semo” they called him. There were people whose lives he touched such as the young crippled boy in India that he’d met and sent $20 a month to and helped promote his knowledge of the place into becoming a wealthy man who ran a tourist operation. “You do not need to send me any more money, Rogi said one time, your help and believing in me I am a wealthy man.” That was always my father, seeing the good in people and pushing them to accomplish things in a way that few could endeavor to.

Like the sun in the sky though the clouds, or a port in the storm, it is to my father that I again dedicate this book, for our shared love for the seas and oceans of the world. The fresh water ones and the salty ones, the ones that have names and those that never appear on maps because they are the things of legend. My poems not particularly about the sea, but sacred hymns flowing with the salt of tears and long moments between pauses of silent afternoons and bittersweet mentions of life when it is worth living and worth loving for. I dedication this to all these mariners who have come before me, a son of the sea myself, and of course the son of a sailor who knows the tenderness of knowing.)
