Shipping News

Here is the record of their splendid days:
The curving prow, the tall and stately mast,
And all the width and wonder of their ways
Reduced to little printed words, at last:
The Helen Dover docks, the Mary Ann
Departs for Ceylon and the Eastern trade:
Arrived: The Jacque, with cargoes from Japan,
And Richard Kidd, a tramp,-and Silver Maid.
