1:00PM ‘OTHERS WILL ENTER THE GATES OF THE FERRY’

Others will enter the gates of the ferry, and cross from shore to shore; 

Others will watch the run of the flood-tide;

Others will see the shipping of Manhattan north and west, and the heights of Brooklyn to the south and east;

Others will see the islands large and small;

Fifty years hence, others will see them as they cross, the sun half an hour high;

A hundred years hence, or ever so many hundred years hence,

others will see them, Will enjoy the sunset, the pouring in of the flood-tide,

the falling back to the sea of the ebb-tide.
