Sjømannen

Hear : the sea calls,
And you’ve missed the calm smoothing waves.
See : the wind blows,
None know best what the seaman craves.

Hear : the guard calls,
And you’ve missed the horn of battle.
See : the gun blows,
None know best how the wars rattle.

The sailor man sings his story,
Of worlds gone by and lands afar,
Of heroes strong and deepened scar,
Of every man and his glory.
