Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

11. The Ship Starting


LO! the unbounded sea! 
On its breast a Ship starting, spreading all her sails—an ample Ship, carrying even her moonsails; 
The pennant is flying aloft, as she speeds, she speeds so stately—below, emulous waves press forward, 
They surround the Ship, with shining curving motions, and foam.
