SETTING SAIL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Exultation is the going
Last Line: Of the first league out from land?
Subject(s): Life; Time

EXULTATION is the going
Of an inland soul to sea, --
Past the houses, past the headlands,
Into deep eternity!

Bred as we, among the mountains,
Can the sailor understand
The divine intoxication
Of the first league out from land?
