    I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by, And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking, And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a gray dawn breaking. I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide 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, And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying. I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life, To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife; And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.   What is the theme of the poem?

      Hard work never hurt anyone.

      The simple things in life may be the best.

    Song of Myself by Walt Whitman    "I understand the large hearts of heroes,  The courage of present times and all times.    ...I am the hounded slave, I wince at the bite of the dogs.  Hell and despair are upon me, crack and again crack the marksmen,  I clutch at the rails of the fence, my gore dribs, thinned with the ooze of my skin..."   Which of the following is an example of imagery from this poem?
