I Must Go Down To The Sea Again


(With a 'nod' to John Measefield's poem "Sea Fever")

I must go down to the sea again
at one with boats to be again,
and walk a shore,
to be once more,
'midst crashing waves; and free again!

I must go down to the sea again
the clouds; the sky with thee again.
Holding your hand,
along the sand,
and love a guarantee again!

The waves along the harbour wall,
the boats in time do rise and fall.
Skippers readying boats inside,
for morning; catch the early tide!

So I must go down to the sea again
to let my soul be free again,
to be at one
with sea and sun,
a rhythm there in me again.
