Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: A WET sheet and a flowing sea, // A wind that follows fast, // And fills the white and rustling sail, // And bends the gallant mast- // And bends the gallant mast, my boys, // While, like the eagle free, // Away the good ship flies, and leaves // Old England on the lee. // O for a soft and gentle mind! // I heard a fair one cry; // But give to me the snoring breeze // And white waves heaving high- // And white waves heaving high, my boys, // The good ship tight and free; // The world of waters is our home, // And merry men are we. // There's tempest in yon horned moon, // And lightning in yon cloud; // And hark the music, mariners! // The wind is piping loud- // The wind is piping loud, my boys, // The lightning flashing free; // While the hollow oak our palace is, // Our heritage the sea.
