FANCIES AT NAVESINK: 6, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Proudly the flood comes in, shouting, foaming, advancing
Last Line: Flaunting from many a spar the flag I love.
Subject(s): Flags - United States; American Flag


Proudly the flood comes in, shouting, foaming, advancing,
Long it holds at the high, with bosom broad outswelling,
All throbs, dilates -- the farms, woods, streets of cities
-- workmen at work,
Mainsails, topsails, jibs, appear in the offing --
steamers' pennants of smoke -- and under the forenoon sun,
Freighted with human lives, gaily the outward bound, gaily
the inward bound,
Flaunting from many a spar the flag I love.
