Sea Fever
Poem by John Masefield. melody by Cathy Lesurf. Herefordshire-born poet, John Edward Masefield trained as a merchant seaman and was British poet laureate from 1930 to his death in 1967. This poem is one of the nation’s favourites and first appeared in SALT WATER BALLADS in 1902. The tune to which it’s set was composed on the coast at Port Eynon; in memory of Amy Wilson And John R.G. Lesurf.

lyrics

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.
