My all time favorite Nautical. It has the smell and the sound of the Sea. All its attraction and Beauty!

I learned this and other poems whilst at Secondary School (1952-1956). This was one of the poems that our Eng. Lit. Teacher enjoyed reading to us, so we could get the meter of how to read poetry. The audio of this poem is PATHETIC, so just read it how you like it to be read.

A brilliant piece of writing. A sailor's poem by a sailor. A sailor who was a Poet Laureat. There's hope for us all yet.

Even though this poem could not be published because of Copyright laws, we have read this alluring poem so often, that it is written into memory heart and soul; we also have a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

A must read for all sailors. This poem defines how we feel so perfectly. If you ARE a sailor please read Ode to Diana.

Well, I like the poem for its melody. I could feel the happiness of a sailor who goes to the sea because of a call of duty and love of sailing.

This is my favourite EVER poem! ! :) It was my great-grandfather's favourite too. He taught it to my gran and her siblings when she was a kid, and when he died they had the line 'and a quiet sleep and a sweet dream' engraved on his headstone.
