Out To Sea Teresa Carey November 7, 2008 Words 2 Comments Please send some good vibes my way. I’m headed out on a two day sail. It will be my first solo sail on my own boat, and I’m nervous. Thankfully I’ll have my cat, Dory, for company! And he loves to sail! You might also enjoy: Dory the Cat My First Solo Sail (part three) Nor’Sea 27 “Daphne” is for sale!
Have a great trip! I’ll be looking forward to the video.
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.
I must 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 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.
By John Masefield (1878-1967).
(English Poet Laureate, 1930-1967)
