Instinctively all nature knows the signs
when it is time to go to sleep and rest.
It is the sun that every day defines
activities and when they are done best.
Leaving the land behind to travel west
where the evening sun slowly declines
the sense of freedom opens people’s chest
removes restrictions from former confines.
A touch of gold from morning’s east is fine
and pushes forward the keen sailor’s zest
in time to finish what was his design
often ignoring nature’s strict request.
