Lady Franklin's Lament (4)

Lady Franklin's Lament (4)

 We sailed away down Baffin Bay
 Where the nights and days were one
 And the Huskimaw in his skin canoe
 That was the only living soul

 The ice king came with his eyes aflame
 Perched on our noble crew
 And his chilly breath was cold as death
 It pierced our warm hearts through
in "Ballads and Sea songs from Newfoundland" by Greenlea and Mansfield
 Collected from Stephen John Lewis of Fleur de Lys, 1929.
