This poem was not included in Mrs. Coates' collected Poems (1916, in 2 vols.).


Through the long voyage we may welcome day,
Glad when the night is gone,
So many threat'ning perils of the way
Vanish before the dawn;

And yet a deeper darkness we may crave
When strife indeed is past,
And we from stress of tempest and of wave
Are nearing port at last.
