Dana, R. H. (n.d.). The Pleasure Boat. Retrieved from


Excerpt: I. // COME, hoist the sail, the fast let go! // They're seated all aboard. // Wave chases wave in easy flow: // The bay is fair and broad. // II. // The ripples lightly tap the boat. // Loose!-Give her to the wind! // She flies ahead:-They're all afloat: // The strand is far behind. // III. // No danger reach so fair a crew! // Thou goddess of the foam, // I'll pay thee ever worship due, // If thou wilt bring them home. // IV. // Fair ladies, fairer than the spray // The prow is dashing wide, // Soft breezes take you on your way, // Soft flow the blessed tide! // V. // O, might I like those breezes be, // And touch that arching brow, // I'd toil for ever on the sea // Where ye are floating now. // VI. // The boat goes tilting on the waves; // The waves go tilting by; // There dips the duck;-her back she laves; // O'er head the sea-gulls fly.
