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.

A couple of Anders limericks

questionablysympathetic:

There once was a mage boy named Anders

Who loved to be free and meander

But he hid in the pantry

While he cursed at the Chantry

And he snuggled Ser Pounce with great candour

 

There was an apostate named Anders

Thought the Templars had got out of hand-ers

So he jumped in the sewers

To spite the wrongdoers

And the holy woman’s demand-ers

(via azuremosquito)
