I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,

And all I ask is a surfski and a paddle to steer her by,

And the surf’s roar and the chop’s slap and the thin hull's racing,

And a grey mist on the wave's face, and the grey swells breaking.



I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide

Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

And all I ask is a fast downwind with the white clouds flying,

And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.



I must go down to the seas again, to the solo surfski life,

To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;

And all I ask is a lifting stern, and wild runners with no broach,

And a fast pace on a sunny day, and a long surf to the sandy beach.

Great work! You'll have to do a little more thinking to get broach and beach to rhyme though...

How about this?:

And all I ask is a lifting stern, and wild runners to take my speech.

Wouldn't apologise to JM mate he'd be thumbs up loving it. Makes me want to throw down my beer and launch out into this rainy night for a blast, almost. Cheers.
