Poem by James Elroy Flecker
Quien hubiese tal ventura? The strangest of adventures, That happen by the sea, Befell to Lord Arnaldos On the Evening of St. John; For he was out a hunting - A huntsman bold was he! - When he beheld a little ship And close to land was she. Her cords were all of silver, Her sails of cramasy; And he who sailed the little ship Was singing at the helm; The waves stood still to hear him, The wind was soft and low; The fish who dwell in darkness Ascended through the sea, And all the birds in heaven Flew down to his mast-tree. Then spake the Lord Arnaldos, (Well shall you hear his words!) 'Tell me for God's sake, sailor, What song may that song be?' The sailor spake in answer, And answer thus made he; - 'I only tell my song to those Who sail away with me.'
