Subject: Folklore: Title of poem by Cicely Fox Smith
From: treaties1
Date: 28 Jun 04 - 10:07 AM

I would love to know the full title of the following snatch from a poem by Cicely Fox Smith

Time for us to go now it's all done and ended,
All that was beastly and all that was splendid
The rough and the smooth and the worst and the best of it
Sad times and bad times all gone with the rest of it.

Stout hearts and faint hearts, cheery blokes, glum blokes
The workers, the shirkers, the plain blokes the rum blokes.
Gone down the years like the snatch of a song,
Time for us to leave her, and - shipmates ,
So long
The words, copied from the booklet with the CD "Seaboot Duff and Handspike Gruel" performed by Pinch of Salt, were so appropriate that I quoted them in a funeral booklet to celebrate the life of my husband(Bill Tooley)

Can't help you I'm afraid, but just wanted to say how good it was to see you at Chorlton.

Hi, Treaties - Keep watching this thread. We have some Fox Smith experts who will be sure to give you an answer. I sent them personal messages to alert them.
In the meantime, take a look at this Poetry of the Sea Website, and the other Fox-Smith threads I've cross-referenced at the top of this page.

These two verses come at the end of a 12-poem cycle called "Shipmates." There's a prologue that starts:

These are the men that sailed with me
In the Colonies clipper "Mary Ambree."


Then the 12 sections, "Skipper," "Mate," and so on through the crew. Then your two verses.

It's from her book "Full Sail."

Funny what you end up finding when one of these threads starts you looking. Below is a part of a poem I found by an oceanographic researcher. In the first several verses he lists all the equipment he remembered to bring along. Then he writes:

I guess you could say that's a mighty big list,
Yet I can't help but feel there's something I've missed.
Ah, silly me, That's it! But of course! ,
More useful than code by a fella named Morse! ,

It's gray and it's sticky and one side is shiny,
More than a few times, it's rescued my hiney.
The sound when it's peeled makes you jump off your seat,
And the scent that arises, oh what a treat! ,

It works magic and wonders in all kinds of places,
From deep ocean vents to those talkative faces,
Man's best idea since he came from the ape,
Where would I be without my roll of duct tape.

Poem written by Ben Larson inspired by his work on the VISIONS05 research cruise.

Naemanson-

Thanks for the verses about duct tape!

Oh, the verses that Treaties1 quoted at the beginning of this thread, which Anglo accurately identified, are found at page 30 of FULL SAIL. There is no title for this set of verses.

They do sort of fit to her other poem entitled "So Long" (All Coiled Down) and might at least be added as a follow-up.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Note that there is another poem that Cicely Fox Smith composed which has the same title and is for clarity now listed as "Shipmates (1914)" on the Oldpoetry website.

Also, the Oldpoetry website is being revamped and is inaccessible for an indeterminate time. The new version was highly unstable, almost as bad as Mudcat!
