How do you like to go up in a swing
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I look down on the garden green
Down on the roof so brown
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

Its special flag or ship-signal,
Of unnamed heroes in the ships- of
Waves spreading and spreading
Far as the eye can reach,
Of dashing spray, and the winds
Piping and blowing,
And out of these a chant for the
Sailors of all nations,
Fitful, like a surge.
