Quotes edit

  • 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.
    • "A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea"; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
