Subject: RE: Fiddler's Green
For Guest SLWagner I might recommend "The Sailor's Grave," a.k.a. "The Ocean Burial," which starts "Our bark was far, far from the land." (one set of words is in the DT). It may be a bit late if you are a stickler for authenticity though; composed around 1850. But certainly a fair bit older than "Fiddler's Green."
