For many a year I've watched the ships a-sailing to and fro, The mighty ships, the little ships, the speedy and the slow; And many a time I've told myself that some day I would go Around the world that is so full of wonders. The swift and stately liners, how they run without a rest! The great three-masters, they have touched the East and told the West! Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was an American poet whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and "Evangeline".He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy and was one of the five members of the group known as the Fireside Poets. Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, and studied at Bowdoin College.4/5.

His age means that he grew up listening to the Violent Femmes and Jim Carroll, reading poems by C. K. Williams and Galway Kinnell, and writing songs about the limited options available in a small. Though he knew that he would not make a living by writing only poetry, his writing career began in when the New Yorker accepted one of his poems, followed by a short story. His first book, The Carpentered Hen and Other Tame Creatures (), was a collection of poems. Updike’s career as a writer has been remarkably prolific and varied.

Eavan Boland was born in Dublin, Ireland. Over the course of her long career, Eavan Boland emerged as one of the foremost female voices in Irish literature. Throughout her many collections of poetry, in her prose memoir Object Lessons (), and in her work as a noted anthologist and teacher, Boland honed an appreciation for the ordinary in life.   I was thrilled to see your post of the “The Ship that Sails.” I have to recommend to you another arrangement of the same – one set to music – by the US Coast Guard Academy Cadet Glee Club. Their director, Dr. R. Newton,produced the revamped piece and I have watched it bring crowds to the edge of tears.
