"I must 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..."
~John Masefield, "Sea-Fever," from Salt-Water Poems and Ballads, 1902
Tall ships weren't called tall ships back in the days when they were the norm on the high seas; the term came into popular usage only in the mid-20th century, when the traditionally rigged vessels began competing in annual races.
In fact, some historians believe that the verse above by English Poet Laureate John Masefield is responsible for the maritime moniker that describes topsail schooners, brigantines, brigs and barques.
