Object Description
Ship’s prow juts in from the left, framing a harbor with billowing clouds beyond. One of eight linocuts with poems by Eleanor Hammack Northcross.
When sailing ships were young we spread white wings. To all the winds of heaver; Dauntless we rode the seas rich laden with The booty of the world. Now we are old and scattered to the winds We harnessed to our will.
Though fate has moored me here, close by Tankers and warping derelicts, My comrades are cloud galleons that sail The sky, dallying with thunder; The little winds that sleep among the hills, Wrapped in the shawl of night.
-E .H. Northcross
