Farther than the lights on the

edge of the world

Farther than the milky way

Farther than the place night breaks into day

Farther still – still farther away –


That is how far my memory goes –

It goes where remembrance fades

And where time loses itself in space –

It bends beyond that lost speck where

The horizon chips away…


And on days when my mind is

Held captive by the city cage

When hissing streets and

Flying bridges ensnare my feet

I yearn to fly away to a place

I know but have not lately seen –
