Sailors and the Sea


Sailor, please tell me what,
from Jonah to James Watt
is common to all travel by sea?
"The water and a wind,
a ship to sail them in,
the sailor, a harbor from all three."

Sailor, please tell me more,
what many have in store
when vocations they choose from the sea?
"Sweet lover for a friend,
a passion without end,
acquainted with salty misery."

Sailor, please tell me why
then, you go down to die
in a grave no mortal ever knows?
"The sea, it's true, only
mistress of the lonely,
whose bosom, they greedily chose."
