Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while, but I just got back from an 11-day camping trip, and although I thought I’d be able to post something during that time, plans didn’t work out. (Spotty Internet and getting distracted with the forest)

Anyway, here’s a poem I wrote that was inspired by John Masefield’s poem Sea-Fever. I recommend reading it, because it’s one of my personal favourites. Enjoy this poem!


I must go into the forest again, into the fragrant trees.

And all I ask is a cool, bright day with a calming, noisy breeze,

And the green smell and spotted sun and the dark limbs swaying,

And the black crow and the dry leaves and the frantic squirrels playing.

I must go into the forest again, for the call of the pathless woods

Is a fair call and a sweet call that I wouldn’t ignore if I could.

And all I ask is strengthened legs and feet to move me on,

And a sense of peace and solitude when the warm sun is gone.

I must go into the forest again, to the life of a vagabond,

Where nature is your enemy who sings a friendly song.

And all I ask is a gypsy lilt from a cheerful fellow-wand’rer,

And health and joy and discoveries as we run on over yonder.
