Poems in English

Adrift! A little boat adrift!

Adrift! A little boat adrift!

Adrift! A little boat adrift!
And night is coming down!
Will no one guide a little boat
Unto the nearest town?

So Sailors say on yesterday
Just as the dusk was brown
One little boat gave up its strife
And gurgled down and down.

So angels say on yesterday
Just as the dawn was red
One little boat o’erspent with gales
Retrimmed its masts redecked its sails
And shot exultant on!
