Whaddaya Say?

Updated: Dec 14, 2022

Dollars to donuts, this is one of the verses that Jack's dad had him learn:


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 gray mist on the sea’s face, and a gray dawn breaking.


-- From "Sea-Fever" by John Masefield (1878-1967)

Yes, I love this. I remember it from elementary school, I believe. So appropriate for Jack. I also remember William Shatner quoting this poem in an episode of Star Trek!
