"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."

"Sea Fever" by John Masefield (1878-1967).

    Wow! If a man does not know what port he is steering for, no wind is favorable to him. Love that quote, LOVE this photo!!

    I know the poem by heart. My mother had six drawings framed of tall ships, each containing two lines of Sea Fever. They mesmerized me. Inspired pairing.
