Across a sea of silver white
I caught a ghost ship's view.
High above her gossamer sail
A starlight curtain flew.

Out of the velvet mist she sailed,
Across the satin sea.
Upon her giant after-deck,
I saw a phantom tree.

Then a bird with rainbow plumage
Flew from the copper sky---
Straight into its cob web branches
As my dream ship passed by.
