“We listened and looked sideways up!
Fear at my heart, as a cup,
My life=blood seemed to sip!
The stars were dim, and thick the night,
The steersman’s face by his lamp gleamed white;
From the sails the dew did drip-
Till clomb above the eastern bar
The horned Moon, with one bright start,
Within the nether tip.”
