Allan Cunningham
When looks were fond and words were few.
Cunningham quotes
A wet sheet and a flowing sea,
A wind that follows fast,
And fills the white and rustling sail,
And bends the gallant mast.
And bends the gallant mast, my boys,
While like the eagle free
Away the good ship flies, and leaves
Old England on the lee.
While the hollow oak our palace is,
Our heritage the sea.
