Ships are anchored, sails are furled,
Shore-lights in the dusk appear;
Faint, and far away, we hear
Roaring sea-ways of the world.
In the haven’s sheltered walls
Soft the starry silence falls!
Winds that drove us through the deep
Touch us now as soft as sleep;
Waves that smote before are now
Rippled whispers at the bow.
Dim lights glimmer on the ships,
Shadowy figures cross the decks.
Golden Hushing phosphor-specks
Sparkle w here an oar blade dips.
Large, above the steady spars.
Shine the radiant southern stars;
Falls, from crystal heights of air,
Sound of wings that seaward fare;
Inland, still and dark and lone,
Night enfolds a land unknown.
Weary wanderers may stay
Here awhile the unknown quest;
Seekers of the far-away
Here a little while may rest,
—Sidney Royse Lysaght, in “Poems of
the Unknown Way.”
