Lee Penelope

In the pathway of the sun,
In the footsteps of the breeze,
Where the world and sky are one,
He shall ride the silver seas,
He shall cut the glittering wave.
I shall sit at home, and rock;
Rise, to heed a neighbor’s knock;
Brew my tea, and snip my thread;
Bleach the linen for my bed.
They will call him brave.
Dorothy Parker

Hilary | 2082 comments I like this it reminds me of the poem/song about men who go to see and women who wait on the shore and weep. I cent remember anything more about it - it's frustrating.

Lee Is it the Harp Song of the Dane Women - number 90?
