    Gone From My Sight

         I am standing upon the seashore, A ship spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for

    the blue Ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs

    like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

     

        Then someone at my side says: "There, she is gone!"             Gone where?

     

         Gone from my sight. That is all.  She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left

    my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.

     

        Her diminished size is in me, not in her.  And just at that moment someone at my side says:  "There,

    she is gone!"  There are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad

    shout:  "Here she comes!"    And that is dying.     A poem by Henry van Dyke.
