the seafarer

the seafarer

an itching of the leg portending a journey
an itching of the ring-finger portending a change of bed
an itching of the eyelid portending tears
an itching of the lips portending a kiss

and should it be my turn for weeping
may I take heart from the noisy-footed goose harvest
and the dazzling cloud-flame and the eye downcast
for landing, if it is ever a question of landing
