SEA-BLOWN

Written by: Joaquin Miller | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 AH! there be souls none understand; 
Like clouds, they cannot touch the land. 
Unanchored ships, they blow and blow, 
Sail to and fro, and then go down 
In unknown seas that none shall know, 
Without one ripple of renown. 

Call these not fools, the test of worth 
Is not the hold you have of earth. 
Ay, there be gentlest souls sea-blown 
That know not any harbor known. 
Now it may be the reason is, 
They touch on fairer shores than this.
