With the present volume and its contents closed down
To open another and pore over its pages anew
Everything was calm and still as I set out
Except the pain of being cast loose from my anchorage
Over the swelling magnitude, we sailed past
To alight into the novelties of another world
On the bosom of a tranquil sea, with fleecy clouds above
We moved on to realms, fanciful and new
And continued to sail over the lolling waters
Gazing at the finny herds in undulating waves
But sudden was the turn of wind and weather
The waves rose to mountain heights
Thunders bellowed over the wild waters
And the sea into an aggressive fiend turned
The billows lashed and crashed over the rocks
All around was the booming sound of rushing waves
Flashes of lightning, left rents in engulfing gloom
And the ship, adrift in the roaring currents
At a point when it was about to drown
The tempest subsided, the sky turned clear
What Providence has saved us from our peril?
We keep wondering now and ever
Knowing that tempests will again strike
And our vessel will be rocked hither and thither
Now, with greater caution in every move
With the riggings once more fastened tight
And with the blue line of a cherished past
Receding quickly away like a cloud in the horizon
We continue our voyage, braving the waves
And sail past to regions far and unknown!
