7 Continents


Here I sit to scribble
in dim confinement of these
two pillars.
To declare my deep thoughts
in hope for fertile grounds
in regions this body may never go.

I pray some earthly being may read this
- my write, that I may walk with you.

To the fairest, Oh Africa where
all life flow.

On towering Himalayas a bird-eyed view
of great wonder.

Or maybe in the chilled winters of Europe

Take me there! to the land beneath this
ground I sit.

Let me go to the remote Antarctic
then voyage to the city of lights
that never sleeps.

And now take me to the Amazon to rest
among a forest of dreams.

I know its much to ask
But let me walk the seven continents.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
