Walt Whitman - Ship Starting, The.

LO! the unbounded sea! 
On its breast a Ship starting, spreading all her sails—an ample Ship,
	carrying even her moonsails; 
The pennant is flying aloft, as she speeds, she speeds so stately—below,
	emulous waves press forward, 
They surround the Ship, with shining curving motions, and foam.
