Famous quotes containing the word port:

    Through the port comes the moon-shine astray!
    It tips the guard’s cutlass and silvers this nook;
    But ‘twill die in the dawning of Billy’s last day.
    A jewel-block they’ll make of me to-morrow,
    Pendant pearl from the yard-arm-end
    Like the ear-drop I gave to Bristol Molly—
    O, ‘tis me, not the sentence they’ll suspend.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
