The megalithic standing stone, La Longue Pierre, can be found about a mile inland from the coast, overlooking Rocquaine Bay in the south-west of the island.
Full twelve feet high, La Longue Pierre,
a megalithic landmark stone,
weathered by time and ocean air,
stands, in its own green sea, alone.
A granite ship, imposing, tall,
with origin beyond recall,
its ghostly shape casts off at night
with grim cadavers for its crew.
The primitive, long-dead shipwright
that placed it here has left no clue
as to its purpose, to what end ...
what matter now, one might contend.
On certain nights, old legend tells,
an eerie luminescence glows,
voices are heard, whistles and bells,
while figures move in serried rows
up the gangplank, along the rail.
The sleepless dead are setting sail.
