By a black wharf I stood latelyB
When the night was at its noonC
Keen malicious stars were shiningD
And a wicked white faced moonC
-
And I saw a stately vesselE
Built in fashion quaint and oldF
From her masthead in the moonlightG
Hung a flag of faded goldF
-
Black with age her masts and spars wereH
Black with age her ropes and railsI
Like a ghost through cere cloths gazingD
Shone the white moon through her sailsI
-
Not a movement stirred the stillnessJ
Not a sound the silence brokeK
Save alone the livid waterH
Lapping round her sides of oakK
-
Then to her unseen commanderH
Spake I as to one I knewL
Don Juan Ponc de L onM
I have waited long for youL
-
Take me with you I implore youL
Take me with you on your questN
For the Fount of Youth EternalE
For the Islands of the BlestN
-
Then above the bulwarks ancientO
I beheld a head ariseP
And the moon with ghastly glimmerH
Lit its sad and hollow eyesP
-
Grieved am I se or and sorryB
Very courteously it saidQ
That I may not take you with meB
But I only take the DeadQ
-
These alone may dare the voyageR
These alone sail on the questN
For the Fount of Youth EternalE
For the Islands of the BlestN
