sea fever


Ezra Caldwell's photos of his dog Putney Sue in Nova Scotia.

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
