Flying with flowers sail over the Summer sea,
Sheer through the seething gale homeward bound was she;
Flying with feath'ry prow, bounding with slanting keel.
And glad was the sailor lad. as he steered And sang at his wheel:

Only another day to stray, only another night to roam,
Then safe at last the harbor past, safe In my father's home.

Bright on the flashing brine glittered the Summer sun,
Sweetly the starry shine smiled when the. day was done;
Blithe was the breeze of heaven filling the flying sail,
And glad was the sailor lad, as be steered and sang through the gale:

Only another day to stray, only another night to roam.
Then safe at last the harbor past, safe in my father's home.

Sudden the lightning! flashed like falchions In the dark,
Sudden the thunders crashed; alas! for the gallant hark,
There, when the storm had passed, a dreary wreck lay she.
But bright was the starry night that shone on the Summer aea.

And a soft smile came from the stars. and a voice from the whispering foam:
Safe, safe at last the danger past, safe In his father's home.
