Songs of the Sea and Lays of the Land

Charles Godfrey LELAND (1824 - 1903)

This is a volume of poetry by Charles Godfrey Leland. The first half of this volume is taken up by the Songs of the Sea, with rather romantic songs about seafaring, mermaids, and adventures, and the second half of the volume contains the Lays of the Land, with poems focused on the things a seaman may encounter when he enters a port. - Summary by Carolin
