Parable of Immortality

by Henry Van Dyke
I am standing by the seashore
A ship at my side spreads her white sails
To the morning breeze
And starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauy and strength,
And I stand and watch until at last she hangs
Like a speck of a white cloud
Just where the sun and sky come down
Mingle with each oher.
Then someone at my side says
“There she goes!”
Gone where?
Gone from my sight—that is all
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
As she was when she left my side
And just as able to bear her load of living freight
To the places of destination.
Her diminished size in me, not in her.
And just at the monent when someone at my side says,
“There she goes!”
There are other eyes watching her coming,
And other voices ready to take up the glad shout,
“Here she comes!”
