Any sailors here?
« on: 29/04/2015 17:02:17 »
Hi. Iím writing a poem about a sailor that was killed by a siren. His mates fire a cannonball in his honor on a dark night full of clouds. Was this ever done before? As far as I know, gun salute happens always during the day; but Iím wondering about a case which might have happened in the past and was precedent. So, was a cannonball ever fired before from a ship in the middle of the ocean as a salute to a killed sailor? And did that ever happen at night? If so, I will be able to salvage my poem. Otherwise I must think of something completely different regarding the last strophe. Thanks.

Err... moderators can delete this topic. I'm not working on the poem anymore.
