 Outbound, your bark awaits you. Were I one 
Whose prayer availeth much, my wish should be 
Your favoring trad-wind and consenting sea. 
By sail or steed was never love outrun, 
And, here or there, love follows her in whom 
All graces and sweet charities unite, 
The old Greek beauty set in holier light; 
And her for whom New England's byways bloom, 
Who walks among us welcome as the Spring, 
Calling up blossoms where her light feet stray. 
God keep you both, make beautiful your way, 
Comfort, console, and bless; and safely bring, 
Ere yet I make upon a vaster sea 
The unreturning voyage, my friends to me.
