That Tugging Sensation…

Sea Fever

BY JOHN MASEFIELD

I must go 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,

I must go 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;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

— first seen in The Lonely Sea and the Sky, by Sir Francis Chichester.

Wallpaper from Dead End Thrills – Skyrim

— If Skyrim had a monarch, it would be my character. (And many other peoples’ characters too, I imagine. But my Skyrim: my queen.)

Rainmeter skins: Encoded, Serenity, Wheat

— Although at this level of minimalism I might as well not have any skins. I like seeing the uptime and all though.
