"This is the ship of pearl, which, poets feign,
Sails the unshadowed main, -
The ventured bark that flings
On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings
In gulfs enchanted, where the siren sings,
And coral reefs lie bare,
Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair.”
excerpt from “The Chambered Nautilus” by Oliver Wendell Holmes
