Quotes (45)

I must down to the seas again for the call of the running tide Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied.
John Masefield (1874-1967), British poet, playwright. "Sea Fever," st. 2, Salt-Water Ballads (1902). The line appears as "I must go down to the seas again ... " in some collections, and in John Ireland's musical setting of the poem; though apparently not in Masefield's drafts, nor in the first published version.
Commonplace people dislike tragedy because they dare not suffer and cannot exult.
John Masefield (1874-1967), British poet, playwright. The Tragedy of Nan, preface (1908).

BIG mistake: .....I must down to the seas again, ...... NB: not -I must 'go ' down to the seas again!
what is the name of the poem/sonnet(?) of which the opening line is 'Oh to be in England now that April's here'?
