Like ships that have gone down at sea, When heaven was all tranquillity.thomas moore
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters.
Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty: This City now doth, like a garment, wear The beauty of the morning; silent, bare, ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie Open unto the fields and to the sky; All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.william wordsworth
