Sing me a song with mist

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Sea Fever” by John Masefield: kick, song, shaking, mist, grey, spume, yarn, vagrant, laughing, way, sleep, over

Sing me a song with mist
On this grey sleep over
Laughing all the way here
Water was spuming
Circling there as I hear

Sing me a song with mist
Weave me a yarn of tales
The room started shaking
Vagrant of migration
Kicking and screaming

Sing me a song with mist
Hope the water don’t rise
And we don’t have such flood
Paper boat floating by
Children play in the mud

Sing me a song with mist
On such a grey morning
I see people pass by
On their way to some place
And bird tweet as they fly*
