SANDY STAR: 5. ONUS PROBANDI, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: No more from out the sunset
Last Line: With the secret on his brow.
Subject(s): Absence; Separation; Isolation


No more from out the sunset,
No more across the foam,
No more across the windy hills
Will Sandy Star come home.

He went away to search it
With a curse upon his tongue:
And in his hand the staff of life,
Made music as it swung.

I wonder if he found it,
And knows the mystery now —
Our Sandy Star who went away,
With the secret on his brow.
