Your intrepidness, the very notion
that dared to launch upon this ocean
a queer dream of open spaces
vast reaches wide, distant island
monuments alone, upon a bounteous
unbalanced main, to roll, ascend
fall again, unstable foot, circled ever
within a thin horizon, never reached
only breached: falling sun, morning rising.
