Exultation Is The Going
Exultation is the going
Of an inland soul to sea –
Past the houses – past the headlands –
Into deep Eternity!
Bred as we, among the mountains,
Can the sailor understand
The divine intoxication
Of the first league out from land?
This is from a marvelous sunset over a bitterly cold day on the Manitowoc Crosslake Ferry. We took a day trip on her late in the season from Ludington, Michigan to Manitowoc, Wisconsin back in October. Why? Because exultation is in the going.
