Sunset Sailors - Song from the Ship

Sunset Sails

To sea, to sea! The calm is o'er;

The wanton water leaps in sport,
And rattles down the pebbly shore;
The dolphin wheels, the sea-cows snort,
And unseen Mermaids' pearly song
Comes bubbling up, the weeds among.
Fling broad the sail, dip deep the oar:

To sea, to sea! the calm is o'er.

To sea, to sea! our wide-winged bark
Shall billowy cleave its sunny way,
And with its shadow, fleet and dark,
Break the caved Tritons' azure day,
Like mighty eagle soaring light
O'er antelopes on Alpine height.
The anchor heaves, the ship swings free,
The sails swell full. To sea, to sea!

Susanne, I think I have to stop saying to myself or to you this is a winner, I think you got a real talent, because everytime I see your sunsets, flowers, ships and everything else, I am just amazed how you capture them at the right moment, right time, to get this most beautiful exposures, and compositions - btw I like the lantern on the side of the ship, briliant addition to your photo. Well done. Anna :)
