Das Schiff verließ den Hafen und ward nie wieder gesehen.

What word is this? “ward”. What’s the lemma?

Its an archaic form of ‘war’ that you should forget immedieately.


Yeah, “ward nie wieder gesehen” is a set phrase. I’ve never seen “ward” in current usage except for this phrase. You can otherwise only find it in archaic texts.
ward = wurde, which explains the “d”.
