Featured on today's playlist was Sea Fever by John Ireland  featuring the poetry of John Masefield. 

"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 shaking, 

And a grey mist on the sea's face , and a grey dawn breaking. "
