Sailor (the little girl who lost her parents in a plane crash)

O Sailor, Sailor, O sweet brave Sailor,
Though bad wings’ failure has wrought dread death,
O Sailor, Sailor, O sweet, sweet Sailor,
May life blow through you her love-strong breath.

May suff’ring touch you not hard forever,
May tragedy reach not your face or eyes,
May joy not wholly from spirit sever
And keen delight be ready to rise.

O Sailor, Sailor, O sweet brave Sailor,
Your start of life is through terrible days,
But harken, Sailor, O brave, brave Sailor,
The years ahead yearn your sweet May ways!
