A tempestuous noise of thunder and lightning heard Enter a MASTER and a BOATSWAIN
Here, master. What cheer?
I’m here, sir. How can I help you?
Good, speak to th' mariners. Fall to ’t yarely, or we run ourselves aground. Bestir, bestir.
My good boy, give the other sailors a pep talk—and do it fast, before we’re shipwrecked. Hurry, hurry!
The MASTER exits.
Heigh, my hearts! Cheerly, cheerly, my hearts! Yare! Yare!
Take in the topsail.—Tend to th' master’s whistle.—Blow, till thou burst thy wind, if room enough!
Come on, men! That’s the way to do it! Quickly! Quickly! Take in the upper sail. Listen to the master’s orders. —Blow your heart out, storm! So long as we have enough room to avoid running aground!
