Empty boats in Marsaxlokk

    Why do I see these empty boats, sailing on airy seas?
    One haunted me the whole night long, swaying with every breeze,
    Returning always near the eaves, or by the skylight glass:
    There it will wait me many weeks, and then, at last, will pass.
    Each soul is haunted by a ship in which that soul might ride
    And climb the glorious mysteries of Heaven's silent tide
    In voyages that change the very metes and bounds of Fate —
    O empty boats, we all refuse, that by our windows wait!

    [The Empty Boats ~ Nicholas Vachel Lindsay]
