First Line: In some unused lagoon, some nameless bay,
Last Line: Lies rusting, mouldering.
Subject(s): Decay; Ships & Shipping; Rot; Decadence

In some unused lagoon, some nameless bay,
On sluggish, lonesome waters, anchor'd near the shore,
An old, dismasted, gray and batter'd ship, disabled, done,
After free voyages to all the seas of earth, haul'd up at
last and hawser'd tight,
Lies rusting, mouldering.
