I in the stillest waters bathe--
Care not in the sea to wade
But, Sailor, what great depths there be!--
And mere "Mark Twain!" in the salt

Sailor, how the frothy waves
Reduce soon to but ocean spray
Ninety yards sha'n't soak your head,
Though tickle they a grin

Sailors!--Oh, how many drown
In the fog of puddles slim
Plunge hands into the shallow murk,
And shave will it the wrists
