You, who snake above with sails unfurled

Wind-blown toward a distant world


You, who catch the wind and dip with glee

While I lurk cold, in misery


You, who skim the bounding surface spray

And scream aloft, “Land ho, make way!”


You, who ebb by choice and flow in jest

As I grow roots, my faults professed


You, who lean and keel, though never fall

Uphold your course, your clarion call!


For I run, split and cut in two

The rock I cling to, molten through

And root my envy further still

Ingrown with greed and iron will

That you should soar above the swell

Two worlds above whence down I fell
