The Long Trail

Since childhood, but now as a professional mariner, Rudyard Kipling’s “The Long Trail” is a poem which, every Autumn, resonates strongly in my heart. His description of the yearning for human migration stretch back through the centuries to his time, and indeed through the millennia to the times of our forebears the hunter gatherers. We all feel it. His descriptions of the actual experiences doing it by sea are as authentic and first hand as they are evocative.
