a light on the sea


The glory of ships is an old, old song,
since the days when the sea-rovers ran
In their open boats through the roaring surf,
and the spread of the world began;
The glory of ships is a light on the sea,
and a star in the story of man
~ Henry Van Dyke

Oh, this is such a beautiful photo, - and the Van Dyke words are so meaningful, - the light on the sea and a star in the story of man.....

I like the poem, and it is a fitting caption for the light on the ship in your photo.
