The Seafarer


I stood beside the deep blue sea
and heard the errant sea gull cry
It was then my heart did sigh
and yearn for foreign lands afar

I watched as clouds hung over head
Crowding close to darkening sky
It was then I did ascry
the ship that sailed round rocky cliff

I cried aloud from sandy shore
and waived my hands to bring it nigh
It was then that I did vie
for berth upon that roaming ship

I sailed that ship around the world
through many journey and lands gone by
It was the life I lived high
Till the day that death did take me
