When on pretentious seas I would embark,
I thought alluring flares would speed my course;
Unfathomed depths my endless quest would mark,
Enhancing serfdom with impelling force.

Within confines that reach for glamorous heights,
One's craft may flounder through the misty ways.
Abject and futile are the dazzling lights
That spread obscurities through hapless days.

Outside those bounds a drifting hulk had veered
And weathered seas, again serene and pure,
My craft on to a shifting course was steered
Beyond vainglory's once enticing lure.

I knew that nothing then could set me free,
Except the vastness of the starlit sea.
