The Story of Columbus free pdf Excerpt from The Story of Columbus Columbus and His Little Son Diego. A way-worn man in Spanish lands, He wanders by the sea- -And by his side a little lad: "O Father! why are we so sad?Why don't you speak to me? "All day the silent ships go by, The long waves wash the shore.I'm weary of the silent ships!The salt waves mock my thirsty lips- -I'm weary of their roar! "Along the sky the ships go by, But never one comes near.So soft and slow, like ghosts they go!They must be ghosts, or else I knowThey would not leave us here! "I think the ships would pity us, If ships could understand! -Why did we leave our quiet home, In the grand old pleasant town, to roamLike beggars through the land? "O, Lisbon was a pleasant town!Till now I never knewHow cool and sweet was our fair street, And the window, shaded from the heat, Where the fresh sea-breezes blew! - "The window of your little room, Where many a day I stoodFor hours, and watched you, while you drewThe charts which every captain knew, The maps we sold for food. "Was it those wondrous maps that putSuch dreams into your mind, Of some strange country, far away, Beyond the ocean, which some dayYou mean to sail and find? "Those dreams have made us sad and poor-Your hair has turned to gray-And, sometimes, when you look at me, Your eyes are strange - they seem to seeThat strange world far away! "O Father! I'm so tired to-night,"The little wanderer said, "That world, and all the things that liveOr grow upon it. I would giveJust for a little bread!" A tear was in the father's eye, But his heart was strong and great: "For thy dear sake, my child, I yearnTo be at rest, but we must learnTo suffer and to wait."
