„Sail forth into the sea of life,
O gentle, loving, trusting wife,
And safe from all adversity
Upon the bosom of that sea
Thy comings and thy goings be!
For gentleness and love and trust
Prevail o'er angry wave and gust;
And in the wreck of noble lives
Something immortal still survives.“

—  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Building of the Ship

Leaning across the bosom of the urgent West,
That fearest nor sea rising, nor sky clouding,
Whither away, fair rover, and what thy quest?“

The Wapshot Chronicle (1957)

„p>Fierce and gentle,
Loud and silent,
The river doesn't understand itself.
The wave doesn't find itself, until it reaches the sea.Oh the wave passes,
And the waves to come will be the same.
Hunger for love
Is strong in the heart.Standing before the waves,
I think of you and me.
I think of the great sea
And I wonder where the waves come from.The waves must come from the wind.
And I wonder where the wind comes from,
And I wonder
When will we love each other again?The waves deep in the sea
And the waves on the sea's surface
Long for the shore of the sea.
Day and night the waves cannot sleep
As I can not sleep, even in dreams,
Because of my longing for you.When I go to the North,
Or to the South,
When I go anywhere, I think of you,
My only direction.Out in the great sea
Thousands of waves are pushing,
Which one never reachs the shore
Even miles and miles from home?Life is so long;
Years and months go by.
Like the sea, life is endless.
Clouds fly to the distant horizon.How can I become
Like the hundreds of thousands of small waves
In the great sea of love
And lap forever against your shore?“

Original: (vi) <p>Dữ dội và dịu êm
ồn ào và lặng lẽ
Sóng không hiểu nổi mình
Sóng tìm ra tận bể</p><p>Ôi con sóng ngày xưa
Và ngày sau vẫn thế
Nỗi khát vọng tình yêu
Bồi hồi trong ngực trẻ</p><p>Trước muôn trùng sóng bể
Em nghĩ về anh, em
Em nghĩ về biển lớn
Từ nơi nào sóng lên?</p><p>- Sóng bắt đầu từ gió
Gió bắt đầu từ đâu?
Em cũng không biết nữa
Khi nào ta yêu nhau</p><p>Con sóng dưới lòng sâu
Con sóng trên mặt nước
Ôi con sóng nhớ bờ
Ngày đêm không ngủ được
Lòng em nhớ đến anh
Cả trong mơ còn thức</p><p>Dẫu xuôi về phương Bắc
Dẫu ngược về phương Nam
Nơi nào em cũng nghĩ
Hướng về anh - một phương</p><p>Ở ngoài kia đại dương
Trăm nghìn con sóng đó
Con nào chẳng tới bờ
Dù muôn vời cách trở</p><p>Cuộc đời đi dài thế
Năm tháng vãn đi qua
Như biển kia dẫu rộng
Mây vẫn bay về xa</p>Làm sao được tan ra
Thành trăm con sóng nhỏ
Giữa biển lớn tình yêu
Ðể ngàn năm còn vỗ.

„Go, gentle spirit! now supremely blest,
From scenes of pain and struggling virtue go:
From thy immortal seat of heavenly rest
Behold us lingering in a world of woe!“

—  Luís de Camões Portuguese poet 1524 - 1580

(anonymous translation)
Meek spirit, who so early didst depart,
Thou art at rest in Heaven! I linger here,
And feed the lonely anguish of my heart;
Thinking of all that made existence dear.
(tr. Robert Southey)
My gentle spirit! thou who hast departed
So early, of this life in discontent,
Rest thou there ever, in Heaven's firmament,
While I live here on earth all broken-hearted.
tr. John James Aubertin, in Seventy Sonnets of Camoens (1881), p. 17
Dear gentle soul, you that departed
this life so soon and reluctantly,
rest in heaven eternally
while I remain here, broken-hearted.

„Ah, Dinamene,
Thou hast forsaken him
Whose love for thee has never ceased,
And no more will he behold thee on this earth!
How early didst thou deem life of little worth!
I found thee
— Alas, to lose thee all too soon!
How strong, how cruel the waves!
Thou canst not ever know
My longing and my grief!
Did cold death still thy voice
Or didst thou of thyself
Draw the sable veil before thy lovely face?
O sea, O sky, O fate obscure!
To live without thee, Dinamene, avails me not.“

—  Luís de Camões Portuguese poet 1524 - 1580

<p>Ah! minha Dinamene! Assim deixaste
Quem não deixara nunca de querer-te!
Ah! Ninfa minha, já não posso ver-te,
Tão asinha esta vida desprezaste!</p><p>Como já pera sempre te apartaste
De quem tão longe estava de perder-te?
Puderam estas ondas defender-te
Que não visses quem tanto magoaste?</p><p>Nem falar-te somente a dura Morte
Me deixou, que tão cedo o negro manto
Em teus olhos deitado consentiste!</p><p>Oh mar! oh céu! oh minha escura sorte!
Que pena sentirei que valha tanto,
Que inda tenha por pouco viver triste?</p>
Lyric poetry, Não pode tirar-me as esperanças, Ah! minha Dinamene! Assim deixaste
