The Ship Starting

Lo, the unbounded sea,
On its breast a ship starting, spreading all sails, carrying even her moonsails,
A 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.

--Walt Whitman

Lo, the unbounded sea--
Happy New Year!
May your ship take off well and come back in with the prosperity of the heart.
