skipper should ye sail this stretch
you’ll find not only Trent Falls
but that she rises twice a day
as sister Humber surges forth

so loose the gates at Cromwell Lock
meander while you may
be sure your vessel’s tight and trim
then set to rest at Torksey

where in the waking morning
you may find me coming in
while at the same time going out
but save your mortal chagrin

though capricious may be my rise and fall
of which to know you have to pay
it is nothing to the looming wall
that Ægir brings to play
