Thoughts on the Sea #6

100_0553O for a soft and gentle wind!

  I heard a fair one cry;

But give to me the snoring breeze

  And white waves heaving high;

100_5865And white waves heaving high, my lads,

  The good ship tight and free—

The world of waters is our home,

100_5729  And merry men are we.

Allan Cunningham, from “A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea”
