Abstract

Speed, my Bark! O, gently speed thee,
where so e'er the soft tides lead thee!
O'er the silver stream careering
Where the graceful Swan is veering,
Speed, my Bark! O, gently speed thee,
Where so e'er the soft tides lead thee!

By the moonlight's gracious beaming,
By the golden stars' bright gleaming,
O! 'tis sweet this course unaided,
When the scorching day has faded!
Speed, my Bark! O, gently speed thee,
where so e'er the soft tides lead thee!
