Line(s) of the Day #SeaFever

Salt water poems

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.

The opening two lines of the poem ‘Sea Fever’ from the collection Salt-Water Poems and Ballads, by John Masefield.

  1. OMG! In the early ’60s we were made to learn this poem off by heart.
    “And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover.”
