    JOHN MASEFIELD – Sea Fever - I have a beautiful hand drawn,18 x 24, black ink sketch of a two masted, full rigged, sailing ship on a silvery/gray poster board like base. It is edged along the right hand side of the sketch in a beautiful old fashioned script of Sea Fever. Various parts of the drawing and text are highlighted with very thick gold frills. I had the painting professionally framed in a large light

    oak frame behind very thick non-glare glass. The text and the lower portion of the picture are liberally highlighted with what appears to be very thick decorative gold colored bars and underlines. This painting was made for me (without my knowing that) and given to me by a neighbor named John Love when I lived in Las Vegas, NV. I believe his motivation for making and giving this to me was because: (1

    he was an artist; (2) he was a sailor at heart; and (3) I was at that time building a sailboat in my driveway. He did this for me without my knowing it in 1971-72. (Yes. I did finish the boat. I sailed it on Lake Mead and sold it when my work at NTS was done in the mid 1970's. The painting now livens up one of the walls here in my cave room.

    When ever I go for a ride to the coast I always think of sea fever while there.

    I painted I must go Down to the sea again on the top of a beach house wall. It amazed me how many people had never heard of the poem or the poet.
    I grew up in a family of individuals who all loved poetry. We read to each other, helped each other memorize poems, wrote poems and never realized how different our family was. I was so fortunate.

Best Poem of John Masefield

Sea Fever

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 grey dawn breaking.

I must go 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 go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy ...

Read the full of Sea Fever

On Eastnor Knoll

SILENT are the woods, and the dim green boughs are
Hushed in the twilight: yonder, in the path through
The apple orchard, is a tired plough-boy
Calling the cows home.

A bright white star blinks, the pale moon rounds, but
Still the red, lurid wreckage of the sunset
Smoulders in smoky fire, and burns on
The misty hill-tops.
