— 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—


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...
