    “The Sailor” by Jack Wynn

    My lady death and darkness

    She has come unto me

    To speak of trite misfortune

    As we travel oe’r the sea

    The Ocean grey and listless

    The whole world pale and still

    The sea knows she has wronged me

    And she cannot break my will

    The music of the waves

    Fades in with the high tide

    I cannot leave my wooden island

    I could not if I tried

    For I have kept myself for the ocean, the ocean cold and wide

    But it is for gold, and gain thereof, that I have died.
