I watched a sail until it dropped from sight, over the rounding sea. A gleam of white, a last for-flashed farewell ,and, like a thought slipt out of mind, it vanished and was not. Yet to the helmsman standing at the wheel, broad seas still stretched beneath the gliding keel. Disaster? Change? He felt no slightest sign, Nor dreamed he of that far horizon line. So may it be when down the tide our dear ones vanish. Peacefully they glide on level seas, nor mark the unknown bound. We call it death-to them tis life beyond.
