Adrift

I knew no other dream than of the sea

For long alone, my only mistress — she.

I craved adventure, voyages, exploits

And loathed both gilded cage and homely quoits.

Day after day my gaze fixed to the sail,

So sure in escaping not to fail…

The wonders of the world were mine to share,

Its mysteries: my own concealed affair.
