Lord, Thou hast made this world below the shadow of a dream,
An', taught by time, I tak' it so--exceptin' always steam,
From coupler-flange to spindle-guide I see thy Hand, O God--
Predestination in the stride o' yon connectin'-rod.

Bursts on the billows the flushing of light
O'er the glad waves, like a child of the sun,
See the tall vessel goes gallantly on.

Without or wave or wind?

And closes from behind.

The barge she sat in, like a burnished throne,
Burned on the water: the poop was beaten gold;

Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
The water which they beat to follow faster,
As amorous of their strokes.
