The Long Return

The Long Return

All the lines are drawn,
all the stones are raised.
In the tones of dawn,
all the gods are praised.

All that we have known,
all the things we made,
all that we have shown,
we shared in fair trade.

Now we journey home
on our long return.

All the signs are clear,
all the lights are bright.
Over stars we steer,
attain lanes for flight.

Farewell to your land,
farewell to your shore,
farewell to your sand,
now forever more.

Now we journey home
on our long return.

All our path is pruned,
all our craft prepared.
All our tones are tuned,
follow our star bird.

Thought it would be good,
thought it could be fine.
Things were as they should
when the stars were mine.

Now we journey home
on our long return.

More yet still to find,
more yet will we learn.
Meetings kind to kind,
on the long return.

Farewell to this isle
on the ocean bed.
Let us wait a while,
think of things we said.

Now we journey home
on our long return.
