I must go down to the seas again

LynneLynne TeachHomePosts: 9,706 mod
From today's Kitely session.

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn 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 windy day 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 vagrant gypsy 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 merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

    @Lynne, thanks for the given text.

    I forgot the meaning of ˋ long trickˋs overˋ. Although I undestand the text and meaning, do I have no idea what ˋ trickˋ at the end means.
    Or was it the end of his life? Sorry Lynne, I have to blame my lousy brain.
