Treasure Island

Herman Melville

(1 August 1819 – 28 September 1891 / New York City, New York)

Old Counsel


_Of The Young Master of a Wrecked California Clipper_

Come out of the Golden Gate,
Go round the Horn with streamers,
Carry royals early and late;
But, brother, be not over-elate--
_All hands save ship!_ has startled dreamers.
