No ship of all that under sail or steam
Have gathered people to us more and more
But Pilgrim-manned the Mayflower in a dream
Has been her anxious convoy in to shore.

    Its actually a lyric poem, as it rhymes. The ryhme scheme being abab. I guess it symbolizes how the Pilgrims were one of the first group of people to come here, and that made others realize that they should come too.
