    We found his flag one bitter morning
    And knew our hopes had come to woe.

    Scott’s Good-bye

    We saw the months of wicked weather,
    As day to painful night did turn,
    Waiting, huddled close together
    For the frozen sun’s return.

    Our nights were almost endless torture.
    Our food was gone. Our fuel was low.
    We came in search of grand adventure
    But ended trembling in the snow.

    Each morning’s effort took us southward,
    Like moths to flames we sought our goal.
    We knew not that far out ahead
    Amundsen had reached the Pole.

    We found his flag one bitter morning
    And knew our hopes had come to woe.
    We had come pursuing glory
    But ended freezing in the snow.

    Hour by hour our strength has left us
    But we’ve struggled on for days.
    With nothing more than will to guide us
    We have tried to reach our base.

    The nights are cruel, the wind is heartless,
    With its ceaseless whip and moan.
    We gave our all; we fought our hardest
    But ended dying in the snow.

    Scott’s Immortality

    Robert Falcon Scott was a British Navy captain who became famous as an explorer of Antarctica. In 1901 he commanded a British ship that sailed farther south than any other ship had before. As a result, he was able to raise money and teams for additional explorations.

    In 1910 he set out to be the first to reach the South Pole. However, other explorers had the same goal. When Scott finally arrived at the Pole in January of 1912, he discovered the flag of Norway waiting there—a Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen, had beaten Scott to the South Pole by a month.

    Caught in blizzards and slowed by illness, Scott and his companions never returned to their camp. They died in March, and their frozen bodies were discovered eight months later.

    Scott’s achievements during life and his tragic death brought him much recognition. Many books, poems, songs, and movies were written about him. In 1913 a song titled “In Memoriam of Captain Scott and His Heroic Comrades: ‘Tis a Story That Shall Live Forever” was recorded. Its first verse is as follows:

    What a glorious tale again is told
    Of heroism grand,
    Of British men with British hearts,
    Out in the Great White Land,
    A band of heroes, brave and true,
    See standing, side by side,
    Amidst eternal ice and snow,
    All faithful ‘til they died.

    Two movies were made about him, the first in 1933. It was called 90 Degrees South: With Scott to the Antarctic. Another film, called Scott of the Antarctic, was made in 1948.

    Many poems have been written about Scott’s ill-fated journey, but few were written in free verse. If you try writing a free verse poem about Scott, remember a few simple rules. Free verse does not use rhyme. It does not use regular meter or line length, either. However, you must be even more careful about how you use rhythm when writing free verse. Consider using repetition in your free-verse poem.
