Mysterious paths on the sea I sailed,
My guide an almanac I read.
I conjured Luna to be veiled,
Then later, show again, blood red.

Marooned, (my ship had been worm feed);
Friendly natives first brought meat.
When wearied of our lasting need,
Their elders came aboard to meet.

"My god," I claimed, "will frown on you,
And take your moon to make you pay!"
The moon then seemed to fade from view;
In short time, it went clear away.

The chieftains gaped with fear and awe,
All cowed, they quickly filled my wish.
Bringing food and drink, we saw,
The grain and corn, the meat and fish.

For months they served us without fail,
Until the time our rescue came.
Dear reader, knowing now this tale,
Can you guess my famous name?
