Walt Whitman – The Ship Starting


You pyonged “Walt Whitman – The Ship Starting”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Lo, the unbounded sea,
On its breast a ship starting, spreading all sails, carrying even
         her moonsails.
The pennant is flying aloft as she speeds she speeds so stately—
        below emulous waves press forward,
They surround the ship with shining curving motions and foam.
