I pressed my face against the glass,
smiled as my breath made some pattern or other
The world beneath unfurled before me like a sail,
glinted in gold from this rich dawn sky
Awaiting the ship they had told me would come,
quietly anticipating that which was to come

I couldn't yet see you. Still obscured by the city
A towers of glass reflected your coming
Silhouetted on the sunrise
Did I blink as I watched? Did I close my eyes?

I was not alone, I think it was the first time
Watching you rise splendid and graceful,
I cheered as you sailed, a greatness unknown
