My Dream Homeland

Tell the sailors The distant sea Is cold at night And the island is Only for those Eyes of love and light. Upward bring your hearts And of Eden never lose sight Lest the roads of Earth Take you where the sun Is not bright. Lost is innocence, Cold is the world, Mixed is wrong with right Crossed are the frontiers, With or without flight But see, This is not the place To remember the past With delight Nor is it of wisdom To forget it And serve the needs Of a knight. Beware the black memory Of the white Look beyond the dark, Open the book of your life And write Open a window of hope And fight. Tell the sailors The distant sea Is cold at night And the island is Only for those Eyes of love and light.
