Sea Fever
By: John Masefield

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking,

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

*A trick is the time spent at the wheel of a ship. Spume is the froth or foam found on waves.

For no one, for everyone

“Twice as beautiful is the experience when two hearts forged in the fires of different lives perceive the same thing and a shared smile escapes, removing all barriers from that moment.” – Allison LaBine

You are home, and you are free.

 

 

Thank you to all the brave soldiers who have ever fought and died for our freedom. May our servicemen only ever be called upon when it’s absolutely necessary.
