Whalemen Adventurers

by W. J. Dakin



Painting by William Duke (1814-53)
Offshore whaling with the 'Aladdin' and 'Jane' 1849 by William Duke (1814-53)
(Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery)
I must go down to the sea 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.
