Storyboard Text

  • It was the schooner Hesperus,        That sailed the wintry sea;  And the skipper had taken his little daughter,        To bear him company. 
  • Blue were her eyes as the fairy-flax,        Her cheeks like the dawn of day,  And her bosom white as the hawthorn buds,        That ope in the month of May. 
  • "Come hither! come hither! my little daughter,        And do not tremble so;  For I can weather the roughest gale  That ever wind did blow."  He cut a rope from a broken spar,        And bound her to the mast. 
  • "O father! I hear the sound of guns,        Oh say, what may it be?"  "Some ship in distress, that cannot live        In such an angry sea!"
  • But the father answered never a word,        A frozen corpse was he. Then the maiden clasped her hands and prayed        That savèd she might be;  And she thought of Christ, who stilled the wave        On the Lake of Galilee.
  • And fast through the midnight dark and drear,        Through the whistling sleet and snow,  Like a sheeted ghost, the vessel swept        Tow'rds the reef of Norman's Woe.
