    I am standing on the sea shore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails in the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of intense beauty and I stand and watch her until at last she fades on the horizon. Then someone at my side says She's gone - But gone where? Gone from my sight - that is all She is just as large in the mast, hull and spars as she was when she left my side... The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me and not in her, and just at the moment when someone by my side says "She is gone" others take up the glad shout "Here she comes" Author: Bishop Brent.
