She comes majestic with her swelling sails,
The gallant Ship: along her watery way,
Homeward she drives before the favouring gales;
Now flirting at their length the streamers play,
And now they ripple with the ruffling breeze.

Speed on her prow, and terror in her tier.

Speed on her prow, and terror in her tier.
