I Am Standing Upon The Seashore
by Henry Van Dyke
I’m standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my aspect spreads her white
sails to the morning breeze and begins for the blue ocean.
She is an object of magnificence and power.
I stand and watch her till at size
she hangs like a speck of white cloud
simply the place the ocean and sky come
to mingle with one another.
Then, somebody at my aspect says;
“There, she is gone!”
“Gone the place?”
Gone from my sight. That’s all.
She is simply as giant in mast and hull
and spar as she was when she left my aspect
and she or he is simply as in a position to bear her
load of dwelling freight to her destined port.
Her diminished measurement is in me, not in her.
And simply in the mean time when somebody
at my aspect says, “There, she is gone!”
There are different eyes watching her coming,
and different voices able to take up the glad shout;
“Right here she comes!”
And that’s dying.
