Может, поэтому?

Интересно, кто автор. Слог очень похож на Киплинга.
Вот она, романтика моря, романтика пиратства. Вот оно - то, что зовёт. Оно между строчек...

TO THE HESITATING PURCHASER

If sailor tales to sailor tunes,
Storm and adventure, heat and cold,
If schooners, islands, and maroons,
And buccaneers, and buried gold,
And all the old romance, retold
Exactly in the ancient way,
Can please, as me they pleased of old,
The wiser youngsters of today:

- So be it, and fall on! If not,
If studious youth no longer crave,
His ancient appetites forgot
Kingston, or Ballantyne the brave,
Or Cooper of the wood and wave...
So be it, also! And may I
And all my pirates share the grave
Where these and their creations lie!

И хочется радостно хохотать во всё горло! Йо-хо!!!
