Row! Row! my Golden Boat!
O dauntless Boat, you roll on choppy waters,
Splashed and rocked by a sea of tides.
Barraged by a turbulence of waves,
You heave and plummet; yet rise again,
Like a Phoenix, seeking to re-adorn
The vestiges, of thy golden mast.
Row! Row! O Golden Boat! Forward, upward, inward
Thy captain commands, as you challenge
The seemingly impossible odds,
Way …, way beyond the horizon.
O Boat, even as you row with an indomitable fortitude,
So too, you mimic the struggle of the Soul,
On this infinite Ocean of Life,
Striving to conquer an alien isolation, to find Its way HOME.
