I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, 

আমি অবশ্যই আবার সমুদ্রে যাব, নিঃসঙ্গ সমুদ্র এবং আকাশে,

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;

এবং আমার চাই শুধুমাত্র একটি লম্বা জাহাজ এবং তাকে চালিত করার জন্য একটি তারা;

And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,

এবং চাকার ধাক্কা এবং বাতাসের গান এবং সাদা পালের কাঁপুনি,

And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide

আমি অবশ্যই আবার সমুদ্রে যাব, ছুটন্ত স্রোতের ডাকে

Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,

To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;

শঙ্খচিলের পথে এবং তিমির পথে যেখানে বাতাস শাণিত ছুরির মতো;

And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, 

এবং আমি শুধু শুনতে চাই একটি মজার গাঁজাখুরি গল্প, উল্লসিত সঙ্গী নাবিকের কাছ থেকে,

And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.
