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.
