    George Sullivan's last comments on poems and poets

      'Sheep' by W H Davies, submitted by George Sullivan 12 Nov 13
      WHEN I was once in Baltimore,
      A man came up to me and cried,
      “Come, I have eighteen hundred sheep,
      And we will sail on Tuesday’s tide.

      “If you will sail with me, young man,
      I’ll pay you fifty shillings down;
      These eighteen hundred sheep I take
      From Baltimore to Glasgow town.”

      He paid me fifty shillings down,
      I sailed with eighteen hundred sheep;
      We soon had cleared the harbour’s mouth,
      We soon were in the salt sea deep.

      The first night we were out at sea
      Those sheep were quiet in their mind;
      The second night they cried with fear —
      They smelt no pastures in the wind,

      They sniffed, poor things, for their green fields,
      They cried so loud I could not sleep:
      For fifty thousand shillings down
      I would not sail again with sheep.
