Fast Day 353 March 15, 2014 St. Patrick's Day, 2014
Saint Patrick's Day, 2014
Leaving you yet asleep,
I rise and travel far away,
into this our endless winter,
this our cold Saint Patrick’s day.
A rare swimmer, now I go
toward the northern wind to roam
around great lake of oblivion,
and to recall the warmth of home.
Mortal billows and icy wind
will not imprison me,
for I shall gain a higher shore,
and soon return to thee!
