Return to Ogygia

Articles of salvage do not

Govern willful grounding:

Terms of legend

(Seven eternities enraptured upon

This island in the wind)

Indenture only the prideful.

The bonds that held one

Night-blind earthly mariner

As ransom for his wanderlust

Now are loosed to weftwork

And freely chosen

By a sailor of the stars.

- David Mitchell
