Thread: Who the poem "Where ever the world winds hurry" ?

    Who the poem "Where ever the world winds hurry" ?

    I found this poem as it was transcribed by my grandfather but do not have any information on author, title, date, publisher, etc. In searching online, the closest thing I found to it was the poem by John Masefield "I Must Go Down to the Sea" (and variations on it) but this poem is different. Knowing my grandfather, there is a good chance that this poem was found a book or magazine about the sea.

    Any help identifying the Title, Author, Date and Context of the poem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
    Here is the poem:

    Where ever the world winds hurry
    by camp or cabin door
    the words swing out
    like a far off shout
    go down to the sea once more
    go down to the gales
    that strip the sails
    and meet with the sea once more

    Where ever the world winds carry
    to farm or hill or fen
    the world sweeps by
    like a far off cry
    go down to the sea again
    go down where the spars
    sweep up to the stars
    and meet with the sea again

    They follow me over the highroads
    and into the towns of men
    til I turn and know
    that Iíve got to go
    to the world of ships again
    to the world of gulls
    of squalls and lulls
    and the land of my heart again

    I can't help with identification but I really like this poem. One starts reading the first and second line slowly but by the third and on the poem really seems to pick up speed.
    ...
    Where ever ... the world winds hurry ...
    by camp or cabin door ...
    ...
    the words swing out
    like a far off shout
    go down to the sea once more
    ...Faery Elves,
    Whose midnight Revels, by a Forest side
    Or Fountain some belated Peasant sees,
    Or dreams he sees, while over head the Moon
    Sits Arbitress...
