Margaretha: Eye of the day


How quick the winds in Java

How blunt the blows

And how deep the sea that closed your body round


Burnished in naught but a shield

Impervious to so much of their poison.

And to fear- in the end


Blow a kiss to the line

Double back over legs that brought and lost you freedom

And return to the melody of the night-


For not a man could say where you are now

In Body or Soul.

Joyfully- Finally-
