Sails below ecliptic

the birds of heaven brawl
opening in lisping calls
the silence falls but once
the right hand in the ship’s wheel glows
the going down of shipmen’s woes
the shore knows what to say
it being said
what heavens weep above the shore
the boat and waves are seen no more
the silent birds are dead
