Away Away She Flies

Away away she flies

Atop the ship’s mast

Singing away her sorrow

Her words lost in the wind

 

Her tears glisten

In the moonlight

Her heart years

For her motherland

 

Waves crash upon the shore

Bathing the rocks with foam

A gale of wind, from the west

Blows away a young man’s hat

 

She keeps an eye upon the horizon

A single cloud adorns it

The smell of sea salt,

And fishes fresh

 

The ship sails away

But she has eyes only for one

She searches but sees naught

She longs for him

 

Tears adorn her face

Her spirit remains maimed

But her eyes shine brighter

Than any star ever would

 

Humming deeply

She turns her back against the shore

Her tiny hands, clap softly

To the rhythm of the sea

 

Away away she flies

Atop the ship’s mast

Singing away her spirit

Her words carried by the wind
