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 gray mist on the sea’s face and a gray dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild and a clear call that may not be denied:
And all ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying 
and the flung spray all 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-rower,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.
