ONCE IN A WAY, by            
First Line: On a ship's poop I'd like to lie, if I could have my way
Last Line: Who always find myself at home in simple company.


ON a ship's poop I'd like to lie, if I could have my way,
With over it the weather-cloths, thumped loudly by the spray;
A sputtering fire between two stones, edging it like a mound,
A pot perched on them, boiling brisk, with bubbling empty sound;
An unwashed cabin-boy to serve; for table I would make
Use of some handy plank; maybe a game of give and take
With sailors gossiping around . . . Lately this chanced to me,
Who always find myself at home in simple company.
