TH' WINDS WILL COME
"It is quite still now above and below, except when the great mains'l gives itself a shake, as if impatient for a gentle breeze, now it is held in confinement by a reef or two. But I say, keep quiet mains'l a little while, have patience, these black clouds will disappear e'er long."
"Then Jack and Bill with Tom and Harry Will loose and hoist you with a song right merry But you must wait so pray be still Let tired sailors sleep that will." ~Mary Rowland 1857
