Like the Clearing of the Sky

TO WHOM SHALL I SPEAK TODAY?

To whom shall I speak today?

I am laden with misery

Through lack of an intimate …

Death is in my sight today

Like the clearing of the sky

Like a man attracted thereby to

What he knows not.

 

Death is in my sight today,

like the longing of a man to see home

when he has spent many years held in

captivity.
