Schooner



David J. Nightingale

March 17, 2005

Inspired by
Sheldon and Jean Van Auken


Alabaster schooner,
sails tipped with ebony,
with mystery,
with longing for the Journey,
sailing seas of cirrus,
free..

Free to follow
cloud-capped, windy waves
wherever they may lead,
into the Undiscovered Country,
beckoning the sailor
to weigh anchor
and discover
the Unknown.


"Undiscovered Country" taken from
Shakespeare's Hamlet, Act III, Scene I.

It is from Hamlet's famous "To be or not to be" soliloquy, Act III, Scene I.

George MacDonald

"Home is ever so far away in the palm of your hand, and how to get there it is of no use to tell you. But you will get there; you must get there; you have to get there. Everybody who is not at home, has to go home."
