THE FIRST E ARTICLE FROM MY STUDENTS

                              THE WRECK OF THE TITANIC...
The poem “the wreck of the Titanic” was written by Benjamin peck Keith.

 Sir, in my opinion, this poem describes about the greatest tragedies at sea. The luxury ship carried 2100 people including the crew. It was the first and last voyage of ‘The Titanic’. The main theme of the poem is, the feelings and the painful death of the passengers. Moreover it is about  managing disasters bravely. Captain Smith advised the crew to remain brave and British. The women and children were the first to be saved. When the ship was going to sink, the music band did not try to escape, instead they played the song “Nearer my god to thee”. This poem is a model for those who are not brave.
