OUTWARDS AND HOMEWARDS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Still are the ships that in haven ride
Last Line: Look, and learn from the ships of the deep!
Subject(s): Ships & Shipping


STILL are the ships that in haven ride,
Waiting fair winds or a turn of the tide;
Nothing they fret, though they do not get
Out on the glorious ocean wide.
Oh, wild hearts, that yearn to be free,
Look, and learn from the ships of the sea!

Bravely the ships, in the tempest tossed,
Buffet the waves till the sea be crossed;
Not in despair of the haven fair,
Though winds blow backward, and leagues be lost;
Oh, weary hearts, that yearn for sleep,
Look, and learn from the ships of the deep!
