The Soggy Bottom Yacht Club A Gentlemen's Club I must go down to the seas again to the vagrant gypsy life.

Sea Fever
by John Masefield — 1899

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 the 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 call and a clear call that may n

ot 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. To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And a quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
