John Davidson

Here you will find the Poem Song of poet John Davidson


THE boat is chafing at our long delay, 
   And we must leave too soon 
The spicy sea-pinks and the inborne spray, 
   The tawny sands, the moon. 

Keep us, O Thetis, in our western flight! 
   Watch from thy pearly throne 
Our vessel, plunging deeper into night 
   To reach a land unknown.
