OUTWARD-BOUND for Singapore,
Steaming to Cathay,
A tramp-ship shoulders across the sunset
Through a race of wind-flung spray.

I watch the ship: a fading blur
Against the flaming sky;
While grey waves tumble along the beach
And the seagulls skirl and cry.

My dreams lift their wide eagle-wings
And follow the ship away,
Outward-bound for Singapore,
Steaming to Cathay!
