A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea

Allan Cunningham

LibriVox volunteers bring you 23 recordings of A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea by Allan Cunningham. This was the Weekly Poetry project for March 4, 2012. Allan Cunningham was a Scottish poet and author. Cunningham was apprenticed to a stonemason, but gave his leisure to reading and writing imitations of old Scottish ballads. His prose is often spoiled by its misplaced and too ambitious rhetoric; his verse also is ornate, and both are full of mannerisms. Some of his songs, however, hold a high place among British lyrics. "A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea" is one of the best British sea-songs, although written by a landsman.(Summary by Wikipedia)
