With the sea-gull's cry across the sky

    Then, if you love me, let me sail
    While a vessel dares the deep;
    For the ship 's my wife, and the breath of life
    Are the raging gales that sweep;
    And when I 'm done with calm and blast,
    A slide o'er the side, and rest at last.

    A Sailor's confidence on the sea is well depicted in this nice poem! This poem reminds me of the famous poem, The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge! (Report)Reply
