Water by Egantx7

Question 9

Among the poems in this collection are "A Pier-Head Chorus", "The Turn of the Tide", "Cardigan Bay", and "Christmas Eve at Sea". The best known work from this collection contains the line:

I must 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.

First published in 1916, identify this collection of writings, which included the aforequoted work "Sea-Fever", by the future Poet Laureate of England, John Maesfield.
