First Line: Loudly the winds do blow
Last Line: Than is a sailor for a little gold?
Subject(s): Sailing & Sailors

LOUDLY the winds do blow,
High do the sea-waves go;
Where is the sailor now, I'd know?
Amidst the billows (look) how he is tost,
Yet hopes the shore t' obtain:
In a small bark the ocean he has crosst:
All for a little gain.
He fits his sails to th' wind,
Then carelessly he sings;
The hope he has contents his mind,
And comfort to him brings.
Heaven for to gain then, shall I be less bold,
Than is a sailor for a little gold?
