Crossing the Bar
=================
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to see,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the
boundless deep,
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of
farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time
and Place,
The flood may bear me far.
I hope to see my Pilot face to face,
When I have crossed the bar.

---Alfred Lord Tennyson
