O ship that shakes on the desolate sea!
    O ship with the wet white sail!
Put in, put in, to the port to me!
        For my love and I would go
        To the land where the daffodils blow
    In the heart of a violet dale!
O ship that shakes on the desolate sea!
    O ship with the wet white sail!
