home page list of works


One more wave to dive in,
One more tree to fell,
One more life to live again,
All would be well.

One last chance to witness
A golden day's dawn,
One last maiden's lips to kiss
Then move along.

Some far peak for pondering,
Some fair vista dreamed:
Imprint on a spirit wandering
In the in-between.

One fine feat of wizardry
Or blind leap of faith;
One prey's prayer to hazard
Before the darkling gates.

Always one more song of passion,
Always one more tale of woe,
Always one last verse, to fashion
Just before I go.

One more wave to drown in,
One more tree to fall,
One quarry brought to ground when
Once does for all.
