Crew uncover hidden poem inside M/Y Themis

A love poem is tucked into the far recesses of M/Y Themis. Chef Sharon Sachse said a temporary mate found the hidden gem. The ode is written in red marker and runs along about four feet of a metal support beam. It is hidden in the Portuguese port-side deck locker, all the way in the back, Sachse said.

“Looking in, you would never see it,” Sachse said. “I crawled on my knees, you can’t even sit up in there. Some of the words are cut off by the other support beam.”

Sachse said the yacht was built in 1999.

“I truly believe it was written by one of the workers who built this ship at Trinity Shipyard,” she said. She transcribed the poem to share in hopes the author may know it has been found.

The poem found inside M/Y Themis.

Themis Hidden Poem

Feel the even love as the thunder through the darkness with a single cloud.

Coming home from a hard day.

It was cold and wet. But I do what I must to make my pay.

For happiness, joy and the hope of a better life.

Oh yes, and all the things a man is brought up to believe that he gives his wife.

But I am truly a lucky man.

For the main things my last wish is to collect from this debt is love.

Which I try my best to give in abundance and with the gentleness of a dove.

As we feel the evening speek [sic].
