White Horses of the Sea by Elfin
A thousand horses, wild and free like waves that follow o’er the sea, heaven is high, the sea is wide their arching necks aloft with pride.
The great white breakers gave them birth they hear no voice, they touch no earth, oh what a sight these flying steed who challenge all the winds for speed.
Bare-backed white horses heave and throw their salty tongues flick to and fro, they rear and toss the foaming tide brushed by heaven with every ride.
They dance and toss their rippled manes shining and soft as silken skeins, galloping hooves no blacksmith shod and flanks unscarred by spur or rod.
There is no earthly breed to beat, these spray-curled racers, fast and fleet, who breathe the foam yet never sleep white crested fillies of the deep.
Original Extraction of Lord Byron’s poem of Mazeppa’s Ride
I strove to cry—my lips were dumb.
The steeds rush on in plunging pride; 310
But where are they the reins to guide?
A thousand horse—and none to ride!
With flowing tail, and flying mane, Wide nostrils—never stretch’d by pain,
Mouths bloodless to the bit or rein, 315
And feet that iron never shod, And flanks unscarr’d by spur or rod,
A thousand horse, the wild, the free, Like waves that follow o’er the sea,

Maine Marine Artist
Deborah Chapin is working a series of small paintings on the subject of Sea and Surf depicting White Horses of the Sea. “White Horses of the Sea 5” at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, is original art, by Maine Marine Artist Deborah Chapin inspired by the poem “White Horses of the Sea” She is just beginning her exploration of the coast of Maine but it is not her first exploration of a coast. Deborah Chapin has been painting marine art for 4 decades and many collectors have admired and purchased her work worldwide. She paints complex wave actions as well as the simple wave on a beach pieces. “I’m just getting the movements of the wave action at Pemaquid Point, she said,” “Every combination of wave and wind and rock formations will result in different (water) actions.” Pemaquid point is proving to be a rich environment for an experienced eye, with several points of rocks jutting out, large boulders and the ability for a churning action of the water because of a drop level. It also produces a lot of what she calls slapping back of one wave into another, it proved ideal action for the proverbial white horses. Spits of water and foam which create the shapes of horses.
