The Orkney Man - Poem by Cicely Fox Smith

'I've sailed onst with an Orkney man,
A deal o' years ago,' said Dan,
'In Clay's old packet
Kubla Khan

'A feller full o' quare old tales
O' singin' seals, an' stranded whales
As comes ashore in the winter gales.'
'A decent shipmate, too . . . he's dead,
Lost overboard off Java Head
A deal o' years ago,' Dan said.
