An Emperor’s Lament

[The cries of an Emperor, 2011, by Kris]

“A strange occurrence was the sudden appearance of 8 Emperors… at the instant the heavy pressure came upon the ship. They walked a little way towards the ship then halted & after a few ordinary…cries proceeded to sing what sounded like a dirge for the ship.”

β€” Frank Worsley
