Walt Whitman - Now Finale to the Shore.

NOW finale to the shore! 
Now, land and life, finale, and farewell! 
Now Voyager depart! (much, much for thee is yet in store;) 
Often enough hast thou adventur’d o’er the seas, 
Cautiously cruising, studying the charts,
Duly again to port, and hawser’s tie, returning: 
—But now obey, thy cherish’d, secret wish, 
Embrace thy friends—leave all in order; 
To port, and hawser’s tie, no more returning, 
Depart upon thy endless cruise, old Sailor!
