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.
One response to “Margaretha: Eye of the day”
Beautiful lines well narrated! 👌
