True, Gray includes in every collection a sequence of short poems, which sometimes have the form of haiku, and they are often perfect in their way. In this, he has gone back to one source of modernism:
Voyage[ edit ] Captain Gray was a merchant ship captain born in Rhode Islandwho circumnavigated the globe between and on the Columbia Rediviva, a trading voyage out of Boston, Massachusetts. He traveled first to the north Pacific coast of North Americato trade for furs, and then to Chinato trade the pelts for tea and other Chinese goods.
He spent nine days trying to enter the river without success before abandoning the effort and sailing north for Nootka.
In April, Gray attempted to enter the mouth of the river, but bad weather forced him to give up. This time he ordered a small sailboat launched to attempt to find a safe passage across the sand bars in the process known as sounding. The farthest point Gray explored upriver is now known as Grays Bay, and the river that flows into it Grays River.
Robert Gray had made a chart of the bay and the mouth of the river, a copy of which was acquired by Vancouver.

The Americans raised counter-points.
No agreement was reached on this and many other points about the right to the Oregon Country. He did not publish it,  and the long-term consequences to which it contributed were unforeseen.
He tried to sail in but the strong currents prevented it, even under a full press of sails. His crew was so reduced that they could not handle the anchor so he could not easily wait for better conditions. He wrote that the seething currents led him to believe it was the mouth of a great river or a passage to another sea.
On July 6, aboard the ton snow Felice Adventurer, Meares sailed off the mouth of the river at the latitude indicated on the Spanish map, but was unable to find the mouth. This led Meares to write in his log: Roc exists, as laid down in the Spanish charts.Pennywise the Dancing Clown - IT's the main form that the creature takes and is said to be its favorite form too.
