News at Eleven: [Scott] Simon: Do you have something

you can read us that you have in front of you?

[Thomas] Pinney: Well, I have--there's a little poem that I particularly like that comes from a time in the First World War. It goes like this: (Reading) Never again in any port that sailor people use can, we or our broken sons consort with the joys shipping there. After our shame we have lost our right to the fellowship of the sea. We dwell alone without the camp till our habitation be.
