Morning Watch - Poem by Cicely Fox Smith

The high stars grow paler -
Day comes to the sea;
The sky's rim unbroken,
The ship running free, -

White sea-birds that follow
And call on her way;
Bright flying fish gleaming
In rainbows of spray, -

Wide seas all around her,
The wide skies above,
And the long road before her
That leads to my love!
