In Farewell.

by Dill   Aug 27, 2017



When turbines seal with their turning wheel
My sojourn far afield,
I ask with love you look above,
And from your heart yet yield,
Those yearning thoughts that in us wroughts
The love wherewith I’ve asked,
You look above, and feel my love
That long I now have basked.

And when the wing, will homeward sing
Your face I hope to see;
For who but you, I’ve long loved true,
Cane home and comfort be?
And when as old, our pipes we hold,
I’ll rest again in peace.
So think on this, your face I’ll miss
And durance long will cease.

      It is, but it has a promise of return at the end, so I think it has a somewhat happy ending.
