Come clean your lines,
lean your sides,
for we're down bound for the Passage.
Sure your boots
and your mitts
stand ye well within the cold.
There's no store away from shore
as you go fathoms under
lo the waves
of the seas
to adventures new and bold.

John say adieu,
fare thee well,
to your sweet lovely Nancy.
She will ner
wait for you
while ya go the lonely way.
She will ner understand
that some men must go searching
for the truth
and their selves
Ďneath some far off distant bay.

So stow your gear,
know your fear,
for we're down bound for the Passage,
through the fog
and the dark
as we dive to under sail.
There to join those mates before
who staunch braved the gloaming terrors
of the seas
away from home

all in quest
of the Holy Grail.

Now you're touching on my own stones, John.
Very, very good...a pleasure to read.

Do you enjoy Rilke?

Sunshine,

ďDo you enjoy Rilke?Ē

Yes, if I find a good translation.  

John

P.S. A site to read Rilke as well as others
without the expense of buying a book:
