to see the land redeemed

we fade from realms of light into no place
where there are never thoughts of any woe
a place where we are not allowed to know
just what the signal is behind each face
no horse nor foot to enter in the race
but there is time for something new to grow
we want to move but our minds are too slow
some other entity must set the pace
but each of us confronts the stars alone
we are the winners and the losers sure
tripped up right at the border of the known
with hearts that are at once firm and impure
whatever happens we have crossed the line
not knowing whether others note the sign
