A Parable of Immortality
I am standing on the seashore.
A ship at my aspect spreads her white sails to the early morning breeze and starts off for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and check out until at past she hangs like a speck of white cloud
Just where by the sea and the sky appear to mingle with just about every other.
Then somebody states, “There she goes!”
Long 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 in a position to bear her load of living freight to the place of location.
Her diminished sizing is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment when a person at my aspect suggests, “There she goes”
There are other eyes seeing her coming
And their voices ready to take up the glad shouts,
“Below she will come!”
By Henry Van Dyke
