CALM AT SEA.

Written by: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe | Biography
 | Quotes (340) |
 SILENCE deep rules o'er the waters,

Calmly slumb'ring lies the main,
While the sailor views with trouble

Nought but one vast level plain.
Not a zephyr is in motion! Silence fearful as the grave! In the mighty waste of ocean Sunk to rest is ev'ry wave.
1795.
