Chapter 23: The Lee Shore

Your solemn eyes survive
As howled lullabies
By the hearthstone, in its comfort,
A ground to firmly stand.

There's nothing to it!
It's a safety dance.
When the weather's fair,
Do the Lee Shore!

But when the storm arrives,
Turn your keel to sea;
The immensity is your safest bet
To find a better way.

There's nothing to it!
Preconception's fine.
When the sky is bright,
Do the Lee Shore!

There's nothing to it!
When the tempest comes
Let your soul roam free
From the Lee Shore!

There's nothing to it!
There's a higher truth,
If you break the chains
Of the Lee Shore!
