Wordless Wednesday: Tall Ship at Sunset

Kalmar Nyckel Tall Ship Photo


"I must 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 grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking."

- John Masefield, Sea Fever: Selected Poems
