Transcript of Sea Fever
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.
*John Masefield’s poem “Sea Fever” is a work of art that brings beauty to the English language through its use of rhythm, imagery and many complex figures of speech. The imagery in “Sea Fever” suggests an adventurous ocean . Along with an adventurous ocean, “Sea Fever” also sets a mood of freedom through imagery of traveling gypsies.The best part is the use of personification and metaphor.
