Walt Whitman

Now Finale to the Shore

NOW finale to the shore! Now, land and life, finale, and farewell! Now Voyager depart! (much, much for thee is yet in store;) Often enough hast thou adventur’d o’er the seas, Cautiously cruising, studying the charts, Duly again to port, and hawser’s tie, returning: —But now obey, thy cherish’d, secret wish, Embrace thy friends—leave all in order; To port, and hawser’s tie, no more returning, Depart upon thy endless cruise, old Sailor!
