Subject(s): Girls; India; Superstition


FLOAT on -- float on -- my haunted bark,
Above the midnight tide;
Bear softly o'er the waters dark
The hopes that with thee glide.

Float on -- float on -- thy freight is flowers,
And every flower reveals
The dreaming of my lonely hours,
The hope my spirit feels.

Float on -- float on -- thy shining lamp,
The light of love, is there;
If lost beneath the waters damp,
That love must then despair.

Float on -- beneath the moonlight float
The sacred billows o'er;
Ah, some kind spirit guards my boat,
For it has gained the shore.
