"The Sea Gypsy"
by Richard Hovey
I am fevered with the sunset,
I am fretful with the bay,
For the wander-thirst is on me
And my soul is in Cathay.
5         There’s a schooner in the offing,
With her topsails shot with fire,
And my heart has gone aboard her
For the Islands of Desire.
I must forth again tomorrow!
10       With the sunset I must be
Hull down on the trail of rapture
In the wonder of the sea.
