There's a Ship on the Sea

by Mary Mapes Dodge

There’s a ship on the sea. It is sailing to-night,
Sailing to-night!
And father’s aboard, and the moon is all bright,
Shining and bright!
Dear Moon, he’ll be sailing for many a night—
Sailing from mother and me.
Oh, follow the ship with your silvery light,
As father sails over the sea!
