Wild Nights! Wild Nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild Nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile the winds
To a heart in port,
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart!

Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in Thee!

- Emily Dickinson

In nautical terms, a mooring is where boats tie up for the night.
the verb is to moor. I think it is easy to confuse this with the
natives of Casablanca, who are Moors.
