I.


WHO hath not sent out ships to sea?
Who hath not toiled through light and darkness to
make them strong for battle?
And how we freighted them with dust from the mountain
mines!
And red gold, coined from the heart's blood, rich in
Youth, Love and Beauty!
And we have fondly sent forth on their white decks seven
times a hundred souls.
Sent them out like sea-girt worlds full of hope, love, care.
and faith.
O mariners, mariners, watch and beware!
