The Wind

"...There will be time in the long days and nights,
stunned by the sun or driven by the stars,
to unwind your spool of life.
You will learn again what you always knew-
the wind sweeps everything away."

'Ithaca', for Leonard Cohen, by Theo Dorgan

From 'Answering Back', Edited by Caron Ann Duffy
