SEA SONGS. 135
I say it to you,
We've both been true To each other this many a day;
Through cold and warm,
Through calm and storm, Since I stepped her first, years away
By wild squalls caught,
How often I've thought Her hour and mine had come!
And she's shook with pride
As through all she'd ride And bring me and our nets' take home.
I love my wife
As I love my life, No better wife breathes—that's clear j
Years come and go ;
Let them pass; I know They but make her to me more dear;
So 'tis with my boat,
My wife afloat, Since the hour she lipped the sea
There's been never a day
That we've worked away But she's gotten more dear to me.
