— Until That Land —

..

I left the night like a ghost

Long have I worshipped a dead home

This leaking hut is too cold

.

Counting flying comets at night

Telling no stories at twilight

Breathing no hope at midnight

Shall my heart

Soon bid farewell

.

Men are warning in souls

Weaker days are mourning—

Yet,

I have unlocked no ear

To every bloody caution

Until I feet on a land—

welcoming my shadow. . .

.

I shall cross my world

By land and by sea

New cosmos. . .

I yearn to see—

..

I have made this journey with heart

Yet there is a crossroad

Tearing me apart

O' Spirit within

The left is void— Night is due

I have swum in sweat for moon

..

I taste no good breeze

I see no stars twinkling

O' Spirit within—

The eyes, the ears, the feet

shall bear my quest a witness on this moon

For I,

Shall ripple like a river

Until that land...

..
