Lover's Gifts VIII: There Is Room for You

There is room for you. You are alone with your few sheaves of rice.
My boat is crowded, it is heavily laden, but how can I turn you
Away? Your young body is slim and swaying; there is a twinkling
Smile in the edge of your eyes, and your robe is coloured like the
Rain cloud.
The travellers will land for different roads and homes. You
Will sit for a while on the prow of my boat, and at the journey’s
End none will keep you back.
Where do you go, and to what home, to garner your sheaves? I
Will not question you, but when I fold my sails and moor my boat
I shall sit and wonder in the evening, – Where do you go, and to
What home, to garner your sheaves?
