Poetry Friday

More pirate poetry for you today.  Today I have Sea Fever, by John Masefield.  I first encountered this poem on a gorgeous Captain Jack Sparrow wallpaper, and was not aware of its source.  I was delighted to find it today.

I MUST 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.

You can read the whole poem at Bartleby.com.

The round-up is at HipWriterMama.

Pirates have been on my mind a lot lately, more even than usual, and I will be issuing a Pirate Challenge once the 48 Hour Reading Challenge is over.
