We Should not Delay

Twice three days

Past the last of the

Snow-and-salt trees,

Belts of long mountains,

We may find

What we deserve

In this serious desert:

The Gates of the Lost

Or Absolution’s pretty gardens.

Though there be no rush –

We each have, after all,

The rest of our lives-

We should not delay

The departure.
