CLIFFORD ERIC CARLSON
March 15, 1920 ~ July 14, 2010
Sequim resident Clifford Carlson passed away peacefully on July 14, 2010. He longed to be with his beloved partner in life, Margit... who passed away just 8 months earlier. "Sea Fever" by John Masefield was Clifford's most loved poem and by this you will know him:
I must go 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 grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go 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 blown spume, and the seagulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life, to the gull's and the whale's way where the winds 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.
