The Traveler's Death Wish ========================= I was once a traveler, too, So to the traveler's code be true. Take nothing till you make a pyre; This lifeless body set afire That living flames may brightly burn, Take back my borrowed heat in turn. My ashes thus return to earth, From whence they came before my birth. But let my eyes to heaven gaze And sight those points of starry blaze While sparks, like spirit, skyward soar That I might wander ever more. (c) 2001 Fyrna Ela'eren All Rights Reserved.
