Lines By Heart: Sea Fever by John Masefield, Part 2
Rachael recites the second half of Sea Fever by John Masefield (started two weeks ago by The Reader's Natalie Kaas-Pontoppidan) - put yourself to the test and see if you can memorise this poem to recite aloud.
This poem really resonates with me as having lived near water all my life, I genuinely feel lost if I am too far inland. The water and the ‘sea’ do call to me and I can understand the determined need to get back there, as we see in this poem. Water signifies escape for me, and freedom!
It is extra special for me, as my Grandad was a seafarer at a time when there was a tradition of reciting poetry and songs and I think he would have loved that I’ve learnt to recite this one!
