Poetry hasn't lost out a bit. Moreover, we now have the machine
With it's own poetry as well, and a totally new way of life,
Businesslike, worldly, intellectual, sentimental,
With which the machine age has endowed our souls.
Voyages are now as beautiful as they ever were,
And a ship will always be beautiful, simply because it's a ship.
A sea voyage is still a sea voyage and distance still exists where it always did --
Nowhere, thank God!
