The Fisherman's Life

by Unknown Author

Father's boat comes sailing,

Sailing from the west;

On the shore stand watching

Those who love him best.

Blooms the gorse so golden

On the breezy down,

Comes a sound of joy-bells

From the busy town.

In the fisher's cottage

Mother's work is done,

Through the open window

Streams the sinking sun.

Cheerily the kettle

Sings upon the fire,

Ticks the old clock loudly,

Creep the shadows higher.

Just now, in the gloaming,

When the boat is in,

And the fish are counted

With a merry din,

All those five together

Up the cliff will come,

Peacefully and gladly,

To their cozy home.
