First Line: I am traveling west
Last Line: Is in my mouth.
Subject(s): Travel; Journeys; Trips

I am traveling west
And my journey ends
Where the days burn out
As the sun descends,
Where the last cool flame,
When the night curves around,
Slips into the sea
Without a sound.

Over the trails I have come
My thoughts may flee,
But a wall of days
Will hinder me
From going back
To the edge of dawn;
I am outward bound
And must travel on.

Though I turn about
There is no delay
In my journey on
The destined way;
Whither to the east
Or north or south
Dust of the west
Is in my mouth.
