< The Works of J. W. von Goethe‎ | Volume 9


THE PROSPEROUS VOYAGE.

The mist is fast clearing.
And radiant is heaven,
Whilst Æolus loosens
Our anguish-fraught bond.
The zephyrs are sighing,
Alert is the sailor.
Quick! nimbly be plying!
The billows are riven,
The distance approaches;
I see land beyond!
