The Cave at the Shore of Wonderment


Mystery

I came for water and found a sea;
All round, mysterious infinity.

All of a one, the world and me;
I sipped of water and drank the sea.

Upon smooth stones I set my feet;
The stones then made themselves my seat;

I listened to the whispering cave;
Whose secret I’ll forever save.

I came for wine and liberty;
And found myself a mystery.
