Sea Fever by John Masefield

This poem is ter­rif­ic for learn­ing the rhythm of Eng­lish (if you are an Eng­lish lan­guage learn­er). For those of us who have steered a boat under sail, it catch­es some­thing magical.

John Mase­field (1878–1967) was the British poet lau­re­ate (the Queen’s poet) for many years. As a young man he had indeed sailed on a tall ship. The words of Sea Fever can be seen here.
