“I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my

Side spreads her white sails to the  morning breeze

And starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of 

beauty and strength.  I stand and watch her until

At length she hangs like a speck of white cloud

Just where the sea and sky come to mingle with 

Each other. Then someone at my side says:

“There, she is gone!”

“Gone where?”

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large

In mast and hull and spar as she was when she left

My side and she is just as able to bear the load of

Living freight to her destined port.

Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And 

Just at the moment when someone at my side says:

“There, she is gone!” There are other eyes watching

 her coming, and other voices ready to take up the

Glad shout: “Here she comes!”

And that is dying…
