A greyness on the deck
A post-office in the afternoon
And a glassed peon.
Any letter for the remote destination?
A grey basin.
A sea-voyage of the river
And a morbid ship.
Gradually become the sea-gull
And the night
And becomes black the night like the night
And there is no nocturnal bird.
Then who will cheer the pole-star?
Awakens the soul only the flapping of the nocturnal bird.
