And the waves which precede you Ripple and stir The sands at my feet."
Author: Amy Lowell

If he had the slightest inkling that she carried hundreds of pounds beneath her stays, he'd surely stop at nothing to get it. And yet, she could not bid caution to overtake the gothic thrill. For Heaven's sake, a pirate.She could be in danger, she admonished herself.She could be plundered.The possibility really ought to have frightened her more than it did.Perhaps she could not escape the man, but she had to tamp down this response he incited in her.
