Unencumbered of soul,
we tread these dunes like spiders.
I have tasted of the sands
of bitterness, and found them to be sweet.
I have returned to the domain
of my exile, and laughed
in exultation at my woes.
The Lord has been with me, yea,
for I have come back again
unto this place of
forging out of campfire and sky
the Music of my longing.
