John Masefield's poem "Cargoes."

"Dipping through the Tropics by the palm-green shores,
With a cargo of diamonds,
Emeralds, amethysts,
Topazes, and cinnamon, and gold moidores" (lines 6-10)

The poem was rather short, but I liked these lines the most. Masefield really wants us to visualize all the things that are on the boat. I pictured that it would be a sunny day so that the light would reflect off the jewels. So yeah, another poem to put on my Like list.
