Horizon Blues


Tonight I’ll try; I’ll board the ship

Concrete feet I cannot lift

Look at me from across the blues

You I speak, it’s you I lose

My ores are heavy, oh they weigh

Though my heart is anchored by this land’s bay


Oh lady, they say distance can be leaped

But cures are scarce for this heart’s beat


No mile longer than the blood in my veins, no distance shorter than this sea’s waves.
