I thank you, Reader, for our trip together,
That we, at last, have reached the end;
For that, through which you stomached, weathered
Lists you now among my friends.
I hope you've gotten something... More > special,
That you, maybe, something new have learned
And can, among the cold peaks, nestle
And in the fires, contented burn.
An answer to, "Why?" I cannot give you,
But only assert: It must be so!
Just as Morning lays the cold dew
On hills ever wind-blown.
I thank you for your precious time
And hope you'll find a pleasant rhyme!< Less
