Many ships have asked for sanctuary

In the harbor of my eyes

I refused asylum to all of them

Your ships alone

Have the right to take refuge

In my territorial waters

Your ships alone

Have the right to sail in my blood

Without prior permission.

The Peacock Room was originally designed by architect Thomas Jeckyll for British shipping magnate Frederick Leyland, who wanted a place to showcase his blue-and-white Chinese porcelain collection in his London home. When American expatriate artist James McNeill Whistler redecorated the room in 1876 and 1877 as a "harmony in blue and gold," he was inspired by the delicate patterns and vivid colors of the Chinese porcelains. Their slick surfaces, however, did not appeal to Freer, who favored complex surface textures and subtly toned glazes. After he purchased the Peacock Room and moved it from London to his mansion in Detroit in 1904, Freer filled the shelves with pots he had acquired from Egypt, Iran, Japan, China, and Korea.

If you smile at me

I will understand

'Cause that is something

Everybody everywhere does in the same language


Wooden ships on the water, very free, and easy

Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be

Silver people on the shoreline let us be

Talkin' 'bout very free, and easy

Shipping vessels ply their trade along the Strait of Georgia off the mainland coast of British Columbia, Canada. Cruise ships headed north to Alaska along the inside passage and passenger-vehicle ferries connecting the coastal and island communities also pass through the Strait. Layered coastal mountains of the Gulf Island archipelago and Vancouver Island loom in the backdrop.
