Maritim Litteratur - Tråden for fine tekster om båter og sjø


Fanafjord

Recommended Posts

Noen av oss er ganske glad i dikt og litteratur. Ikke at jeg kan så mye om det - blir bare glad når man treffer på flott formulert settning. (Eller den treffer meg.)

 

Tenkte å ha en tråd der vi kan dele det vi liker å lese så lenge det har med båter og sjø å gjøre.

 

Starter med en dikt av John Masefield: "Sea-Fever". Sea-Fever er noe vi alle ha når høsten kommer og vi sitter i stuen ser ut vinduet ser havet og tenker som så:

 

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,

And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,

And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

 

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide

Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,

And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

 

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,

To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;

And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover

And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

 

By John Masefield (1878-1967).

(English Poet Laureate, 1930-1967.)

Edited by Fanafjord (see edit history)

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,

And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,

And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
