March 19th

Between the clouds pales the sun’s snow-washed face
J turns to catch his shadow but it’s gone
His father left the village on St. Joseph’s Day
Across the mountains he walked and the sea held him close

Goodbye to my father, goodbye as the days grow
One day I will follow, go with you to the sea
