THE SAILOR'S SOXG OF THE SEA. Iwill-ingyoumysongofthesea. For its music is charming to me Thethemeoftheoceanwave, It* symphonies grey and grave, All, ail are the song- of the free. The hurricane's fury and blast. That vvhistle through rising and mast; The storm-bird's threatening cry. As he rides on the breaker" so nigh, And the roar of the ocean vast. These, these are the voices for me Sureiv, none like bold mariner- see The might of the unseen hanu But rarelv ye see on the land How passionate Nature can be. You speak of the dangers wo brave. When the winds and waters rave But five me the rollicking sea, "VVitn its song of the wild and the free, And your land life I never will crave For I have a simple notion, That the changeable mood of the ocean Gives voice to the soul in me So much of my life I see In its turbulent, frolicsome motion. The sunlight and shadows that creep O'er the measureless face of the deep. How much they resemble life's story. Its moments of sorrow and glory, The changes that through my soul sweep The bonnie blue deep is my home In freedom's wild grandeur I roam. j Seeing nothing but see and sky, As the days and the weeks go by And I laugh at the feathery foam. Heave ho: then, my white-wing'd steed; Speed over the waters speed I So long we have voyaged together, j In sunny and stormy weather. No tempest nor danger we heed. On the wings of the wind we will fly. My vessfl, so gallant, and I, Till we find in the ocean's deep brea-t, The calm of an undisturbed re-t. While the month* and the years roll by. L. H. COURT. 24, Bonthall-place, St. Thomas.
