by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

On this wondrous sea
Language: English 
On this wondrous sea
Sailing silently,
Ho! Pilot, ho!
Knowest thou the Shore
Where no breakers roar --
Where the storm is o'er?

In the peaceful west
Many the sails at rest --
The anchors fast --
Thither I pilot thee --
Land Ho! Eternity!
Ashore at last!
