Forty-three knows well the western wind,
Oracle of paradise regained,
Rhapsody for wanderers bereft,
To tide surrendered once the winds have waned.
Yearning drives the sailor from behind.

There is, of course, neither sea nor shore.
How things turn out is how they ever are,
Remaining in the Eden we have left,
Ecstasy eternal, though the bar
Extend beyond the dream we hunger for.
