Thread Name: Lyr Add: Mother Carey (John Masefield)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Mother Carey (Masefield)

I hadn't run across "Ode to Mother Carey's Chicken." The poem has a nice theme, returning caged Mother Carey's Chicken to the sea.

I am familiar with Tom's singing of C. Fox Smith's "Mother Carey." He does his usual excellent job.

So how did Mother Carey and Davy Jones get together? Did they meet with the assistance of the E-Harmony Website or its mythological equivalent? Inquiring minds would love to know and John Masefield provides no additional notes.!
