The swimming dog chair

"Days of joy, how have ye fled?
Joy immortal, are ye dead?
Is there nothing that can hold you?
Can my limp arms not enfold you?
Days of floating on the stream,
Softly lapped as in a dream,
With the white clouds swimming slowly
In an ether pure and holy!"

(A. Schaffer in A summer vacation)

Marine Route

"Warte, warte, wilder Schiffsmann,
gleich folg' ich zum Hafen dir;
von zwei Jungfraun nehm' ich Abschied,
von Europa und von ihr."

Eyes above the water

Eyes above the water

"Eyes like a little limpid pool
that holds a sunset sky,
While on its surface calm and cool,
blue water lilies lie."

How to build that ship?

How to build that ship?

“This is the ship of pearl, which, poets feign,
Sails the unshadowed main, —
The venturous bark that flings
On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings
In gulfs enchanted, where the Siren sings,
And coral reefs lie bare,
Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair.”

(O.W. Holmes in The chambered nautilus)
