Across The Water

Gary Sim, December 30, 1999

in a land very close
in a time that is now
lives a ferry princess
with long hair and eyes that see

some daemon placed
cormorants and fog
to guard the ramparts
across the water

I shall cross blindly
(not swimming, of course)
and scale the heights
your siren song weaving the way

we will rise up out of this fog
and fly high and bright
for ever
and ever
