559. Two sails flashing bright on the royal-blue bay

1. Two sails flashing bright on the royal-blue bay!
Two sails fill out tight and sail calmly away!

2. When one in the breezes moves hither and yon,
The other with ease as its shadow responds.

3. If one wants to hasten, the other goes fast,
If one asks for quiet, its companion has rest.
