The Ships of Hoorn
Joost van den Vondel (1587–1679)
 
(Extract)
Translated by Annie Wood

TO heroes Hoorn has given birth,
And gallant souls to man her fleets;
The produce of her faithful earth
In distant lands a market meets.
Where’er the moon on far-off lands        5
Her silvery light benignly sheds,
There, countless as the yellow sands,
The ships of Hoorn her commerce spreads.
