Question

With no canoe I crossed the sea

Swift and strong and agile me.

Blood a-pumping, my mind awoke

Fatigue grew worse with every stroke.

I rested long on island green

By shade of palms I viewed the scene.

On island I was bound to stay

Lest I could best the bird of prey.

What should have been a day of fame

Turned quickly to a year of shame.

What's happened?
