‘Neath Sun And Moon
I walk 'neath sun and moon, in silence and in song
This path where shadows meet: 'tis where I belong.
I pass ever onwards, faithful to my feet.
Yon’ curtains of mist, through snow and sleet.
In surging darkness, in raging storm,
In sorrow and in joy, ‘till I am safe and warm.
Through fire and chill, through wild and still,
Beside long rivers until my cup at last is fill.
Up, down, around, across – how, I do not care.
North, east, south, west – I know not where.
Journeying through night, following the distant star
‘Till I pass from know or sight beyond the mountains far.
Goodbye to the easy, farewell to the known!
Search not for me further, for this bird has flown!
What road I take or walk, I cannot say.
But this I know surely: I'll not pass again this way.
