De Vliegende Hollander

(Flying Dutchman)

The Flying Dutchman

by Thomas Moore

Written on passing Dead-Man's Island

See you, beneath yon cloud so dark,
Fast gliding along, a gloomy bark?
Her sails are full, though the wind is still,

And there blows not a breath her sails to fill!

Oh! what doth that vessel of darkness bear?
The silent calm of the grave is there,
Save now and again a death-knell rung,
And the flap of the sails, with night-fog hung!
