      Could your dad actually be quoting from 'Cargoes' by John Masefield, which begins with the phrase you quoted?

    I need help finding a good poem that has a 'disdainful' tone to it, I have been looking and, to put it in a nutshell, I am not very good with poetry. I have to be able to write a two page paper explaining how the poem has a 'disdainful' tone to it, if you could help, I would really appreciate it!

    Thank You So Much,

    Austin Borgstede

    I am looking for a poem that I first came across whilst in the Senior school many years ago. I have had no success to date locating it and was hoping that someone knows of it. I cannot remember the title, although I'm sure it has 'sailor' in there somewhere. I only remember some of the first verse. The words I don't know or am unsure of are in brackets.

    Here stands a sea-legged sailor
    Come to this loitering Inn
    Just when the (? ? ? ?) shades of (? ? ? ?) are fading
    The (? ? ? ?) shades of (evening) begin.

    Well that's all I remember. I hope someone can help me.

    Hello everyone I'm looking for a poem about the sea. I have a few of the first lines but have not been able to locate it anywhere on the web. Here goes...

    The sea is a fine illustration of your life.

    For the most part, the sea is

    But storms come up unexceptedly,
    Winds blow,
    Giant waves swell,
    lighting strikes,

    Thats all I can remember. Anyone heard of this one? ?
