Sea Fever - by John Masefield (1878–1967)

 

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.

Scott's career as a captain includes power and sailing vessels on voyages comprising the eastern and western coasts of the US mainland and the inter-Hawaiian Islands, along with numerous Gulf of Alaska crossings and extensive experience on the Puget Sound as well as travel through the Inside Passage and coastal British Columbia. Additional voyages range from Antarctica to the Galapagos Islands, including the western coasts of Mexico and South America, and many trips through the Panama Canal -- in addition to Bermuda, Bahamas, leeward and windward Caribbean, Costa Rica, Newfoundland, and offshore Nova Scotia.

And beyond... with more on the horizon.
