Sail On!

Raging Sea

I ran across a word of encouragement today (Mar 13, 2013).
It’s in the form of a poem by Joaquin Miller.

They sailed. They sailed. Then spoke
the mate:
“This mad sea shows its teeth
tonight.
He curls his lip, he lies in wait,
With lifted teeth, as if to bite!
Brave admiral, say but one good
word:
What shall we do when hope is
gone?”
The words leapt like a leaping sword:
“Sail on! sail on! and on!”
