The Traveler's Death Wish


Song of the Wanderer

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.
