Who hath seen the Phantom Ship, Her lordly rise and lowly dip, Careering o'er the lonesome main No port shall know her keel again. . . . Ah, woe is in the awful sight, The sailor finds there eternal night, 'Neath the waters he shall ever sleep, And Ocean will the secret keep. Albert Pinkham Ryder, 1897
