The Flying Dutchman…


“Who hath seen the Phantom Ship,

Her lordly rise and lowly dip,

Careering o’er the lonesome main,

No port shall know her keel again…

Ah, woe is in the awful sight,

The sailor finds there eternal night,

‘Neath the waters he shall ever sleep,

And Ocean will the secret keep”.

(Albert Pinkham Ryder)
